EARLIER 9AM: A DRAMATIC police pursuit through Mackay CBD has ended in a rollover.
A male driver allegedly rammed a police car and continued to flee from officers through the streets of Mackay this morning.
A tyre spike was deployed but the driver managed to evade authorities.
About 5.30am, police received a call about a man slumped over the steering wheel of his parked car on McGuire St, Andergove.
A Queensland Police Service spokesman said the man accelerated away as his vehicle away as police approached him, ramming the police car and fleeing the scene.
"Police put out a tyre deflation device which proved successful, but the vehicle continued to drive down Harbour Rd, Mt Basset Rd and Shakespeare St," the spokesman said.
"The vehicle struck a truck on the corner of Milton St and Shakespeare St and rolled."
The spokesman said police apprehended the driver about 6am and took him to Mackay watch-house.
The driver of the truck was not injured in the crash.
Multiple police units were involved in the pursuit.
