Swedish cleaner not to blame for train crash

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.

The woman had initially been accused of stealing the train.

1. That poor woman.

Imagine being accused of stealing a train after that.

You would think it would be harder to start - maybe even require a key or something.
