Stockholm train Woman drove stolen train into apartment block

“THE woman started driving the train from the Neglinge train station, which is two stops from Saltsjöbaden, and usually a three-minute ride. The train usually goes at about 10 kilometres an hour in this area, but we estimate that she was going at about 70 kilometres per hour.” 

“We still don’t know why she was in the driver’s seat or whether the incident was an accident. There’s a police investigation underway and we’re waiting for them for clarification.”

So says SL spokesman Jesper Pettersson of the cleaner who boarded the train and then careened into an occupied apartment block at 3am.

The woman has been arrested on suspicion of public devastation.

If you’re going to get a criminal record, get them to write public devastation on it. It’s got more impact than criminal damage…
