A 20-year-old woman who was on the cleaning staff of a train decided to take control of the train, derail it, and crash it into somebody’s home in Stockholm, Sweden.

The woman is said to have suffered from severe injuries from the incident, after she was unable to stop the train once it reached the end of the line at around 2:30 AM this morning.


The woman had the train going so fast that it continued for nearly 100 feet after leaving the track, before smashing into an apartment building where three families were sleeping at the time.

The woman was trapped inside the driver’s cabin for two hours before emergency workers could cut her free.

She was conscious but suffered serious injuries and had to be airlifted to Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm.

The train was empty at the time of the theft, and nobody in the home was hurt.

“The train drove straight through the barrier, so it must have been going a lot faster than these trains normally do,” spokesman for Stockholm’s Lokaltrafik Fredrik Cavalli-Björkman said, adding that at normal speed, the train would have been blocked by the buffer stop.

“The trains should not be out and about this late. We are investigating what had happened, who has got the key and access to these trains.”

“It’s like something out of a movie,” said police spokesman Robert Heurgren. “We received notification of a missing train early on Tuesday morning and the next thing it is found smashed into a home.”

“The fact that we’re not dealing with a more serious accident is absolutely unbelievable, both for those who were inside the building and on the train,” police commander Ulf Lindgren said.


“It’s incredible lucky that the situation isn’t worse.”

She was arrested at 9 AM for destruction endangering the public.
