VIDEO: How Not to Beat the Traffic in Tallinn, Vol. 2
A Land Cruiser took the direct route down from Harju Hill today around noon in an effort to shake police pursuers.
The police played it safe, leaving their vehicle at the top, except for two officers in yellow vests who tried to wrench open the car doors while trying to keep up with the SUV down the narrow limestone corridor. One succeeded, but sustained minor injuries.
The Land Cruiser driver's adventure ended at the bottom, as his way was blocked by concrete pigeons. The driver, a 44-year-old man who was moderately intoxicated at the time, attempted to flee on foot, but was apprehended.
The 95th anniversary of the War of Independence ceremony, set to start a short time later, went on without any interruptions.
