Late on Friday evening, a car drove into an empty gas bus on route 900 near Eskilstuna, the police write on their website.

The collision caused both vehicles to catch fire. The accident was preceded by the driver escaping a police checkpoint a few minutes earlier.

“The police patrol drove after the car but lost sight of it shortly before the collision,” writes the police.

The condition of the driver’s injuries is unclear. The accident site was cordoned off during the night.
