It was in May 2020 that the police in Lerum chased after a moped with two 16-year-old boys on it.

It ended with the driver of the moped, Alexander Storåker, losing control and both boys were thrown off.

He who went to the back survived without serious injuries but Alexander went in with his head in a lamppost and died immediately.

The police who drove the subsequent car were charged with causing another person's death and misconduct, but were acquitted in October this year.

But now the verdict is being appealed.

- I think it is quite obvious that the boys understood that it was the police they were trying to escape from and that the police understood that the boys were trying to escape.

The police are initiating a prosecution and it is contrary to their regulations, says Anders Jakobsson, chief prosecutor at the Special Prosecutor's Office.
