Bruce Hwy arrest: Car thief shot, run over

EYEWITNESSES have claimed a man involved in a massive police chase on the Bruce Highway was shot after he crashed his car at Yandina and attempted to flee the scene.

Reports say the man, who was believed to be armed, crashed his car, was shot by police and then run over by another vehicle.

Police had been tracking the man since this morning after a number of cars were stolen in the Wide Bay area and the man wounded a woman in her 30s and took her vehicle before police spotted the car and gave chase. 

Officers from the Special Emergency Response Team caught up with the car thief on the Bruce Highway near Nambour where he is believed to have been shot.

The Bruce Highway remains blocked in both directions.
