A man has been charged over ramming 10 cars in a street west of Brisbane, after he was subdued in a citizen’s arrest this morning.
Russell Allan Draper, 52, allegedly crashed his ute into other cars on an Ipswich street before attempting to steal a car outside Churchill State School.
Mr Draper hit one car on Warwick Road, then collided with six cars at the Moffatt St intersection and another three cars at the Balaclava Street intersection, police allege.
A 97-year-old woman is in hospital with serious injuries after her car was struck in the first ramming.
Witness Michael John and another man tackled Mr Draper, restraining him until police arrived.

“He hit people there, then he’s smashed into people here, he’s jumped out of his ute trying to pull other people out of their cars,” Mr John said.
Victim Elaine Jerrett said the incident was “like something out of a horror movie”.

“I heard a bang on the other side of the road and a car just came veering through and just headed straight at us,” she said.
“We’re all a bit shaken.”
Police said it was fortunate the incident did not harm nearby school students.

“It’s occurred just after the school drop-off, so luckily it’s occurred afterwards and not beforehand, otherwise we could have been looking at something very different with kids walking along the street going to school,” Acting Senior Sergeant Kim Clist said.
Mr Draper has been charged with 16 offences, including 10 counts of wilful damage, two of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and one count each of attempted unlawful entry of a vehicle, common assault, dangerous operation of a vehicle causing grievous bodily harm.
He is due to appear in the Ipswich Magistrates court tomorrow.
