Two 12-year-old boys are among a group of six juveniles who have been arrested after two stolen vehicles collided during a dangerous joyride on the Gold Coast.
The nasty smash, involving a white Mercedes A180 and a blue Nissan Qashqai, happened at the intersection of Currumbin Creek Road and Leonard Parade in Currumbin Waters around 2am Wednesday.
The impact of the crash caused the Qashqui to roll onto its roof.
Police rushed to the scene but found the occupants of the vehicles had already fled by the time they arrived.
A quick check revealed both cars had been stolen from homes in Tugun and Tweed Heads earlier in the week.
Officers called in the dog squad to help scour the scene and found the youths hiding nearby a short time later.
Two 12-year-old boys, two 14-year-old boys and two 15-year-old boys are now facing a string of charges including unlawful use of a motor vehicle, bringing stolen goods into Queensland and break and enter offences.
Police allege all youths are known to each other.
Investigations are ongoing.
