ONE CAR FLIPS AND ANOTHER LOOSES CONTROL ON THE GOLD COAST

A car has flipped onto its roof after being rear-ended by another vehicle on the Gold Coast.

Police say the incident happened at around 9:30 last night, when a car that was allegedly weaving in and out of traffic on the M1 Pacific Motorway at Coomera failed to give way to a merging vehicle in front.

The car in front has then veered to the right, hitting a guard rail and flipping onto its roof.

The first car skidded for approximately fifty metres before spinning 360 degrees on the roadway and coming to a stop.

The driver and sole occupant of the first car, a 23-year-old Eagleby man, sustained cuts and abrasions and was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital for observation.

He is scheduled to appear in Southport Magistrates Court later this month, charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and driving unregistered, among a string of other charges.

The driver and sole occupant of the second car, a 31-year-old Kedron woman, was taken to the same hospital for observation.
