A cleaning woman has stolen an empty commuter train in a suburb of Stockholm and crashed it into a house, injuring herself, Swedish officials say.

She drove the four-carriage train out of the depot for about a mile (1.6km) until it jumped the tracks, ending up wedged into a three-story building.

Police arrested the woman, who was flown to a Stockholm hospital with serious injuries. Nobody else was hurt.

A railway official confirmed the woman was an employee with a good record.

“We have only heard good things about her,” Tomas Hedenius, a spokesman for train operator Arriva, was quoted as saying by AP news agency.

“We’re investigating how this could happen, and why she did what she did.”

Three families were inside the apartment building hit by the train but nobody was injured, the spokesman added.

“It’s incredibly lucky that no one in the house was injured,” police spokesman Ulf Lindgren told TT news agency.

Christer G Wennerholm, a member of the Stockholm County Council’s traffic committee, said: “It shouldn’t be possible for unauthorised people to drive our trains.”
