Police are hunting the drivers of two stolen cars that crashed into each other at the entrance to the Mitchell Freeway at Ocean Reef Road in Heathridge overnight.

They fled after the Mazda 3 and silver Mercedes Benz coupe crashed near the south-bound ramp at 2.50am, destroying a traffic light pole. The police canine unit were called to search for the drivers.

The Mercedes was stolen from Iluka earlier this morning and the Mazda taken from a house in Kewdale Monday morning.

The drivers were the only people in each car and it is not known if they were racing.
