A man is currently assisting police with their investigation into a dangerous driving incident at Maryborough this morning.
Around 8.30am police received calls to Triple Zero (000) reporting a vehicle that was being driven dangerously towards Hervey Bay.
A short time later a marked police car observed a vehicle matching the description on Gympie Road turning into Iindah Road West and activated their emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to intercept it.
The vehicle has stopped at a stop sign at roadworks before pulling out of a line of traffic and continuing on, allegedly evading police.
In the process the vehicle clipped a second vehicle that was also stationary in traffic at the roadworks.
Police stopped and rendered assistance to the occupants of this vehicle, a woman and a child. No one was injured.
Police then received a report that the vehicle had crashed into a pole at the intersection of River Road and Mclaughin Road, Maryborough.
Police attended and a man was arrested nearby.
Investigations are continuing.
