A police spokesman said one car was turning right into the Point Cartwright at a green light when a Toyota Hilux heading south in the far-right lane allegedly came "flying through" the intersection and crashed into the front of the car.

It's understood the driver of the Hilux ran from the scene, but was stopped further down Nicklin Way.

The 24-year-old Yandina man was in police custody while being taken to hospital, and has since been charged with driving under the influence of liquor or drugs.

He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on August 10.
