The moment a stolen car smashed through an intersection before two teenagers fled the scene on foot has been captured in shocking dashcam footage.

Just after 4pm on Wednesday, the stolen BMW X5, which was earlier taken from a property in Stretton, in southern Brisbane, ploughed into a light post in Upper Coomera.

Shortly before crashing at the Abraham Road and Reserve Road intersection, teens were spotted by members of the public driving the vehicle dangerously.

Footage showed the car only narrowly avoided striking other motorists when it slammed to a stop, sending debris flying across the road and causing the airbags to deploy.

While the motorist behind the wheel of the car that captured the footage called police immediately, it was a member of the public that stepped in to detain the boys.

Another member of the public waved down a passing police car while police crews, including the dog squad, were also deployed.

In separate footage, one of the alleged offenders was seen facedown on the ground being put into handcuffs by a police officer.

Queensland Police have charged two 15-year-old boys following the crash.

Police were alerted at 3.55pm to the grey vehicle being driven in a dangerous manner heading north on the M1 near Upper Coomera.

By 4.11pm a member of the public had waved down police who were patrolling the area.

“A member of the public saw the crash and detained one of the boys at the scene. A second boy was also detained nearby,” police said.

The BMW was stolen between 2am and 4am, police alleged.

A 15-year-old Pacific Pines boy was facing nine charges including one count each of dangerous operation of a vehicle, driving without licence, wilful damage, and two counts each of enter dwelling and commit, receiving tainted property, and unlawful use of motor vehicle. He was due to appear at Southport Children’s Court on Thursday.

A 15-year-old Helensvale boy was facing with six charges including one count each of enter dwelling and commit, fraud, possess property used in connection with commission of a drug offence (water pipe), and receiving tainted property, and two counts of unlawful use of motor vehicle.
