Three members of the Queensland police and two other people are all in a serious condition following a car crash and stabbing.
The Queensland Police Service members were called to Moon Street in Caboolture South, to the north of Brisbane, at about 2.45pm on Saturday after they received reports that a man had been stabbed.
At 2.50pm, the police vehicle was involved in a two-car crash on River Drive, less than two kilometres from the location of the alleged stabbing.
Three members of the police and the male driver of the other car, who police said they believe is linked to the stabbing, were all taken to hospital in a serious condition.
The alleged stabbing victim was also taken to hospital in a serious condition.
“En route to the [stabbing] job, the police vehicle has been involved in a traffic accident,” Moreton District police inspector Craig White said.
“The driver of [the other] vehicle is believed [to be] connected to the offence committed at Moon Street.
“No one has been arrested at this stage.”
Mr White said one of the members of police was a recruit undergoing “on road practical training at the time [the accident] occurred”.
He said police are investigating both the stabbing and the car crash, and are asking any witnesses to come forward, including those with any dash cam footage.
