Police are currently attempting to find the other car and have labelled the incident as attempted murder- alternatively manslaughter. The ethnicity of the man who has been detained has not been revealed.
Borås municipality has a population of 107 395 and Hässleholmen has now become an area where ethnic Swedes are in a minority.
Hässleholmen has become notorious for social unrest and there have been a number of other incidents there this year ranging from a man being stabbed to death midday outside of a grocery store to another being shot to death by several masked men.
