Woman drives stolen train into house

STOCKHOLM: A cleaning lady stole a train and drove it off the end of the tracks and smashed into a house in Sweden yesterday, injuring only herself in an incident police are investigating.

It was not clear how the woman, aged around 20, gained access to the key needed to start the train. She was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but the train had no other passengers as it was in the early hours and no-one in the house was hurt.
