Shocking footage has appeared of the terrifying moment when a allegedly stolen Jeep is making its way through slow traffic in an attempt to escape the police.
Five young people, including a 12-year-old girl, have been charged with a series of alleged violations related to the multi-vehicle collision, injuring 18 people in Queensland on Monday.
A Grand Cherokee Jeep was reportedly stolen from a house in Brisbane on Sunday before being noticed by an off-duty officer on Monday afternoon in Petrie, in the Moreton Bay region.

An unmarked police vehicle followed the car for a short while before turning north on Gympie Road in Carseldine.
Officers approached the car when it was stopped in traffic near the Petrie roundabout and claimed that the driver had escaped by driving between two lanes with stationary cars.
A total of 15 vehicles were damaged before the Jeep stopped abruptly at a police blockade.
Adam Pelzer heard the collision outside his company and saw the last moments of the alleged chase unfold before the Jeep was surrounded by police.

& # 39; The traffic was all backwards and suddenly this jeep just came straight through the middle & # 39 ;, he told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; Eventually it came to a stop and all these police came running and surrounded the vehicle. The police said they were chasing them for half an hour. & # 39;
Another witness made the incident and said it was a miracle that no one was killed.
& # 39; We stopped for about a minute when suddenly we could hear smash, smash, smash, smash coming from behind, & # 39; she told the Courier Mail.
& # 39; I looked in the rearview mirror and saw all those cars piling up in the bridge wall.

& # 39; The police jumped out of the way. I am surprised that none of the police have been removed. Cars went everywhere. & # 39;
Mr Pelzer said that the five teenagers were angry because they were caught.
& # 39; They all said they loved each other & # 39 ;, Pelzer told Daily Mail Australia.
Paramedics treated 13 people on site, while another five were taken to the hospital in a stable condition.
It took more than an hour for the police to clear the wreck off the stage on Monday
Four teenagers, including a 17-year-old Morayfield boy, two 14-year-old boys from Redcliffe and Caboolture, a 14-year-old Rothwell boy, and a 12-year-old girl were charged with a series of violations.
They include unauthorized use of motor vehicles, dangerous operation of a vehicle, burglary, spoiled possessions, possession of a medicine and unlawful possession of suspected stolen property.
The traffic was piled for miles with one lane of Gympie Road closed because the police needed more than an hour to remove the wreck from the scene.
