Three men have been charged following a pursuit on the Sunshine Coast this morning involving an alleged stolen vehicle that later crashed at Maleny.

Around 3am Beerwah police observed a black Mazda 6 allegedly stolen from Jacobs Well on May 26 travelling along Frizzo Road through Palmview.

Officers then followed the vehicle as it turned onto Pignata Road and became stuck at a dead end.

As a result the Mazda continued through a roadworks access gate and onto a road that is currently being constructed next to the Bruce Highway with police following in an authorised pursuit.

A tyre deflation device was successfully deployed by a quick-thinking officer who exited their police vehicle while the stolen car was stuck at the dead-end street and set up the sting as it travelled onto the Bruce Highway.

Police continued to follow the damaged Mazda at low speed onto Steve Irwin Way before the vehicle lost traction and continued on its rims along Railway Street, Landsborough.

The car then travelled towards Maleny, allegedly swerving across both lanes at low speed before eventually losing control west of Mountain View Road and crashing down an embankment.

The male driver and front passenger attempted to flee the wreckage, however were caught up in thorny lantana and quickly taken into custody. Another male passenger was arrested in the car after becoming stuck inside due to thick lantana covering the door.

No one was injured in the crash.

A 26-year-old Beenleigh man has been charged with nine offences including two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, evasion, driving unlicensed and one count each of drug driving, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possessing dangerous drugs.

A 35-year-old Redbank Plains man has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possessing dangerous drugs and a 43-year-old Boondall man has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

All are due in Maroochydore Magistrates Court tomorrow (May 29).
