Cleaner hijacks train, drives it into kitchen

January 15, 2013

Bizarre and dangerous, or what????

Train in building crash

“A cleaning lady stole an empty train in Sweden and drove it to a suburb of Stockholm where it derailed and slammed into an apartment’s kitchen.   The woman was seriously injured in the early-morning crash and was flown to a Stockholm hospital, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said. No one else was injured.”

Edit: 3 days later, “A cleaning lady accused of commandeering an empty Swedish commuter train which crashed into a house did not steal the vehicle, officials say. Prosecutors in the capital, Stockholm, said that they had closed the criminal case against the woman, who sustained serious injuries in the accident. They said they now believe she started the vehicle by accident as she was cleaning it in the middle of the night.”
