The accident happened at 12.53 p.m. on Sunday in Rapla County where a Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) Škoda Octavia, driven by a 44-year old officer, veered into oncoming traffic on the 38th kilometer of Tallinna-Rapla-Türi tee. The patrol car collided with a Toyota Avensis, being driven by a 54-year old man, the PPA told BNS.
