Two hours after the stabbing, the car drove onto the Bruce Highway and police began their pursuit.

Police followed behind the car as it headed northbound on the highway towards the Sunshine Coast.

A device was used to deflate the car’s tyres but did not manage to slow down the car which drove off before crashing into a police car near Yandina.

A 29-year-old Morayfield man was taken into custody and was transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital under police guard.

Police will allege he is known to the woman who died earlier that night.

No charges have been laid as yet.

Two police officers – a male Senior Constable and male Sergeant – were also transported to hospital with minor injuries.

The woman’s death is being treated as a homicide and an investigation has been opened under Operation Victor Ammi.

Police are appealing for anyone with information, CCTV or dashcam footage in the vicinity of Short Street last night to come forward.

Anyone with information or footage in relation to the traffic crash is also asked to contact police.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic and family violence, you should report it to police.
