STAFFORD St in Silkstone was strewn with debris as the entire street turned out to look at a dramatic accident that involved a stolen BMW and a white ute.

Police arrested one suspect who fled from the BMW after it rolled onto its top.

Two other men in the BMW were being treated by ambulance officers last night with injuries that were thought to be not life-threatening.

The driver of the ute, who lives in the street and was reversing back into his property, was treated by ambulance officers and transported to Ipswich Hospital with bruising and cuts to his head and hand.

Residents were all out on their front lawns to view the scene where fire engines, ambulance vehicles and numerous police vehicles and officers attended.

One male resident of Stafford St told The Queensland Times of hearing "a loud bang and a hell of a screech of tyres."

"A bloke got out of the BMW and took off up the road," he said. "A civilian chased him and just as he got to him the police arrived and put cuffs on him."
