A 23-year-old man will face court charged with allegedly causing a serious crash in Florey on Sunday while under the influence of drugs and driving without a licence.
Police were called to Parkwood Road in West Belconnen just after 10am after reports of two cars, a blue Lexus IS200 and a blue Ford Falcon, doing burnouts and driving erratically.
The drivers of the cars were asked to stop by police, but the drivers allegedly drove towards Southern Cross Drive instead, going through Flynn and Spence.
An ACT Policing spokesman said the cars were driven directly at police, with the Lexus being driven on the wrong side of the road.
The 23-year-old Lexus driver collided with another car at the corner of John Cleland Crescent and Tattersall Crescent in Florey and was arrested.
The driver of the other car in the collision sustained minor injuries.
The 23-year-old was charged with failing to stop for police, driving unlicensed, aggravated dangerous driving and driving under the influence of drugs.
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court on the charges on Monday.
Officer in charge of Gungahlin Police Sation, Station Sergeant Rod Anderson said it was miraculous no one was seriously injured in the crash.
"This driver is extremely lucky that they haven't seriously injured someone through their thoughtless and reckless behaviour," Station Sergeant Anderson said.
"When you drive in a dangerous manner, you put lives at risk, plain and simple, and police will not tolerate this kind of behaviour on our roads."
