Two teenage boys and two teenage girls have been charged after a man died from a crash involving an allegedly stolen car in Brisbane's east.
Police said one of the boys and one of the girls were in the car and ran from the scene after the crash with a motorcycle at the intersection of Kianawah and Youngs roads in Wynnum West about 9.20am.
The 59-year-old motorcyclist from Hemmant in Brisbane was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition, but later died.
Inspector Lindsay Kilpatrick said the crash happened when the car, a Nissan X-Trail, crossed onto the wrong side of the road and tried to pass the motorcyclist "at speed".
"Another vehicle that was proceeding in the same direction behind (the motorcyclist) has crossed onto the wrong side of the road and, at speed, began to pass him," Kilpatrick said.
"As he turned right, there was a collision between that vehicle and the motorcycle."
He said the collision caused "very, very extensive" damage to both vehicles.
Kilpatrick said the crash was witnessed by a driver travelling behind the motorcyclist.

"It's a tragic event," Kilpatrick said.
Those teens and two others have been charged.
