Police believe a ute involved in a smash on Binstead Way this morning may have been stolen.

Emergency crews were called to the single car rollover near the Motorway overpass at Pacific Pines at 4:17am, but the badly-damaged vehicle had been abandoned.

According to police, a male and female were seen running from the area after the smash.

The ute crashed into a tree and light-control box before flipping, taking out power to nearby traffic lights. 

Officers remained on the scene all morning directing traffic.
