A Greenbank man has been arrested following a head on vehicle collision at Crestmead on Thursday night.

Police allege the 23-year-old Greenbank motorist ran a red light and drove on the wrong side of the road before crashing into another car on Fifth Avenue at 9.55pm.

The driver of the second vehicle, a 70-year-old Slacks Creek woman, was transported to hospital in a serious condition.

Paramedics transported six patients to hospital including three teenagers aged 16, 15 and 13 who suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Critical Care Paramedics and the High Acuity Response Unit also attended.

A Queensland Police Service spokesperson said it was alleged that the same vehicle evaded police earlier that day after being spotted without displaying registration plates.

He was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing grievously bodily harm whilst adversely affected by an intoxicating substance, unlicensed driving, evading police, drug possession, receiving tainted property, stealing and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

The man was denied bail and is expected to appear at Brisbane Magistrates Court today.

Meanwhile, a woman aged in her 50s suffered back pain after crashing her vehicle near the Stockleigh Road and Neville Road intersection at 11.40pm last night.

She was transported to Logan Hospital in stable condition.
