Swedish cleaner not to blame for train crash

A cleaner accused of stealing an empty Swedish commuter train which crashed into a house did not steal the vehicle, officials now say.

Prosecutors in Stockholm said they have now closed the criminal case against the woman, who who sustained serious injuries in the accident. They now believe she started the vehicle by accident as she was cleaning it in the middle of the night.

"Everything suggests it was a pure accident where several temporary and unfortunate circumstances caused the woman to set the train in motion when she was cleaning," Paer Andersson said in a statement, according to AFP news agency.
