THE driver of a stolen car that hit and killed a man driving home from work allegedly tried to flee the scene before spitting blood on police as they tried to arrest him.

The horror high-speed crash also killed a male passenger in the man's car.

It is understood an ambulance came close to being involved in the collision, with the stolen car spotted coming towards them at speed on the wrong side of the Gympie Arterial Rd as they transported a patient.

Instead, the car hit a 36-year-old Indian national on his way home from work.

He died instantly, as did the male passenger in the stolen car.
