Masked driver manages to evade police for now

A MOTORIST wearing a mask while driving on the wrong way on the Sunshine Motorway has led police on a dangerous chase.

Last night, officers were still trying to track down the motorist, who was in a stolen car when he sped from police at Mountain Creek to Sippy Downs and through Kawana.

Police first spotted the white Toyota Landcruiser on Bundilla Blvd about 11.45am and identified the car and plates as stolen.

When officers attempted to intercept the car, the driver sped off and a pursuit ensued.

A police media spokesman said officers had been instructed to call off the chase after about a kilometre, when the driver's behaviour became too dangerous.

Several motorists called police when they witnessed the driver heading towards Chancellor State College, before he allegedly turned around, headed back on to the motorway via the onramp and went south on the wrong side of the road.

Plans to deploy stingers at Sippy Downs were thwarted when the driver sped towards Claymore Rd before he was spotted again on Kawana Way.

"The driver is still unaccounted for," the police media spokesman said.

Anyone with information should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
