Four people are in police custody after two cars were allegedly driven at high speed before crashing on the Sunshine Coast this afternoon.

Police activated their lights and both of the vehicles immediately sped away, the Mercedes heading towards Nambour and the Commodore travelling towards Montville and Nambour Hospital.

A police car followed the Mercedes for a short time before the vehicle allegedly crossed to the wrong side of the road and into the path of oncoming traffic.

A police motorbike headed in the direction of the Commodore and came across a three vehicle traffic crash which had just occurred outside of the hospital.

Members of the public alerted the motorcycle officer to a man and girl allegedly fleeing the scene on foot.
