Appeal – Dangerous driving, Sunshine Coast to South Brisbane

Police are appealing for public assistance following an incident of dangerous driving spanning from the Sunshine Coast to Brisbane this morning.

At 7am, a man was driving his vehicle southbound on the Bruce Highway at the Glasshouse Mountains when a 2006 model, gold coloured Nissan X-Trail reportedly cut in front of him, forcing him to take evasive action into another lane.

It was then reported the driver of the X-Trail began throwing items from his vehicle at the man’s car before swerving at him and attempting to run him off the road.

The dangerous driving continued to be observed by the man for approximately 30mins until they reached the Gateway Bridge where the vehicles became separated.

Multiple reports were made to police in relation to the manner of driving of the X-Trail as it continued south on the M1 towards South Brisbane.

Officers are appealing for anyone with dashcam footage of the movements of the Gold X-Trail (similar to the one pictured) between the Glasshouse Mountains and South Brisbane to make contact. Additionally, any further witnesses to the dangerous driving are urged to contact police as a matter of priority.
