Police have issued a stern warning to drivers involved in alleged hooning activities after breaking up a car meet in Burleigh.

Officers were called to the Stockland shopping centre around 7.30pm on Friday following reports a large number of vehicles had gathered in the car park.

According to police, the cars had allegedly been drag racing on a nearby road just moments earlier.

Police attended and issued six men with infringement notices for a range of issues including speeding and conducting burnouts.

Shortly after, police discovered a number of the vehicles that had attended the car meet had been involved in a 10-car crash on the Pacific Motorway.

“It’s believed up to 10 motorists were involved in that and they were part of that earlier car meet at Burleigh Heads,” Acting Superintendent Tim Mole told the ABC.

He said it happened northbound at Gaven, resulting in one vehicle flipping onto its roof.


Two people were treated at the scene by paramedics for minor injuries.

Investigations are ongoing.
