Watch how close this dangerous hoon comes to police

MOST people who are flagged down by police do the right thing and pull over.

However, police claim the person in these images had other ideas.

The images are taken from the dash camera of the Finch Hatton police. They were filmed following an incident on the Mackay-Eungella Rd, between R Watts Road and Works-Benholme Road, about 10.48am July 6.

It is alleged that when police activated their lights and sirens in a bid to pull over the car, the driver of the vehicle accelerated across to the other side of the road to avoid interception by police.

 

Police are hoping to find the person in the image, as they believe they will be able to assist in investigations relating to an incident on the Mackay-Eungella Road on July 6.

No one was injured.

Police believe the man or woman may be able to assist in their investigations.

Anyone who may have information linked to either the car or the driver is encouraged to phone the Finch Hatton Police Station (not a 24-hour police station) on 4958 3120, the Mackay Police Station on 4968 3444, or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
