According to police, the car - allegedly packed with five teens ranging in age from 13-16 - went through the red light where it collided with a car driven by an unsuspecting member of the public at Beaudesert Rd and Boundary Rd.

Police had been safely tracking the car's whereabouts in the lead up to the crash in an attempt to deploy road spikes, however did not pursue the vehicle over safety concerns.

Following the crash, one teenager is alleged to have fled the scene on foot, while the other four remained inside the car until they were taken into police custody.

The fifth teen allegedly fled the scene before the police dog squad located them a short time later.

All five teens were uninjured in the incident and taken into police custody.

They will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.

The driver of the other vehicle was uninjured.
