Four people are on the run after eight people – three of them seriously – were injured in a crash on the Gold Coast.
The four were in a black AMG Mercedes-Benz that crashed into the back of a Mitsubishi Outlander station wagon near Kratzmann Avenue on Miami’s Gold Coast Highway around 1 a.m. Sunday.
“It is alleged that this vehicle (the Mercedes) was speeding prior to impact,” Acting Chief Superintendent Chris Stream said Sunday.
