As a young constable continues to fight for life after being mowed down by a stolen car at Booval, the Police Union has sprung to action to raise money for his recovery. 

24 year old constable Peter McAulay suffered head and internal injuries, as well as fractures, when the Volvo ploughed into him as he attempted to lay road spikes. 

The two people inside that car, allegedly teenagers aged just 15 and 16, took off on foot after dragging Constable McAulay more than 10 metres along the road. The police dog squad tracked them, and the paid has now been charged with attempted murder.

More than 24 hours on, Queensland Police Union president Ian Leavers says the constable's condition is still the same. 

"He's still in an induced coma. We are just hoping and praying that things get better," he told Nine. 

For now, the union's raising money for McAulay's recovery. 

"Pete's in for the fight of his life and we're there behind him and we've gotta support everyone and his family."
