Nobody was injured in the incident and local police have not pointed out a suspect yet.
"This is serious. It's not just that they destroyed a police car, but because of that the police couldn't get out to people who needed help because they couldn't drive", said Jan Lagerkvist with the Jönköping county police.
Following the incident, police were notified of another car race going on in a nearby industrial area in Bredaryd. It is unclear whether the same people from the initial attempted car race started the second one.
