The pair are accused of fleeing the scene at Oxenford yesterday afternoon on the Coomera Bridge overpass.
“The man secreted himself in mud and was apprehended a short time later by the police dogs in swamp land off Heathwood Drive and Reserve Road.”
The man will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court this morning.
He has been charged with drug and weapon possession offences.
The woman was charged with drug offences and is expected to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court next month.
The pair were driving a 2010 white Freelander Landrover station wagon when the crash occurred.
“Multiple patients, including a woman who was entrapped in one of the vehicles and an infant child were assessed at the scene, however there were no critical injuries,” police said.
