Train Cleaner in Stockholm Crash Now a Victim, Not Suspect


The woman train janitor who on Tuesday January 15, 2013 was believed to have commandeered the empty four car Arriva commuter train that crashed into a residence in Stockholm may be a victim of a safety problem. She is no longer a suspect. Although she does not remember the crash, she apparently told details of some nature to rescue personnel.

Though not many details have been released, it appears the cleaner may have grounds to sue Arriva. There may be safety violations involved, if in fact the train started accidentally while she was cleaning; there may be deficiencies in the train which factor in.
