A strange incident involving a Saab 9-3 Aero driver took place this weekend on the outskirts of Stockholm, in the district of Vårby. On Sunday morning, a traffic incident in swedish city of Vårby resulted in a pursuit and eventual capture of the driver of Saab 9-3 Aero. According to Inspector Reine Berglund, a patrol had attempted to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to comply, leading to a chase on the streets.

The driver, who was behind the wheel of a Saab, ultimately drove onto an old exit from the E4 highway and continued north on the long-closed road. However, the road eventually became too thin for the vehicle, causing it to get stuck between Highway Guardrails. The driver then fled the car and ran towards Masmo, but was quickly apprehended by police.

The individual is now facing multiple charges, including drug intoxication, possession of drugs, gross illegal driving, carelessness in traffic, and money laundering offenses. Additionally, 35,000 SEK in cash was found in the car, leading to suspicions of illegal money acquisition.

For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
