UPDATE: POLICE have been unable to locate the occupants of who fled the scene of a car crash in Brassall yesterday morning.

It is believed a number of young males managed to escape a Landrover that flipped onto its roof after proceeding through a stop sign at speed and colliding with another car.

The 71-year-old male driver of the other vehicle was not seriously injured.

The Landrover involved in the crash had been stolen overnight from a Brassall address.

EARLIER: Four people have fled the scene of a high speed crash involving a stolen luxury four-wheel-drive.

A nearby resident said the four-wheel-drive flipped onto its roof and skidded up to 50m after hitting an innocent motorist at Brassall about 9.55am.

Video footage of the crash shows four people inside the reported stolen car taking off on foot, sparking a police search.

Donna Caesar said the crash happened at the notorious intersection of Vogel Rd and Haig St, where she had seen several bad crashes recently.

"The little green car was going west on Haig St and this stolen car has smashed into the front of it," Mrs Caesar said.

"The impact spun the green car around 90 degrees. The four-wheel-drive flipped onto its roof and then skidded the length of about three front yards."

Queensland Ambulance Service confirmed two people were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
