    No, the woman did NOT steal the Stockholm train and crash into the apartment building

    Cleaning Lady Cleared of Wrongdoing in Train Crash; Was Doing Her Job When Train Started Moving (Gawker)
    Authorities and prosecutors investigating the case of a cleaning lady who was at the helm of a train when it went off the rails near Stockholm and crashed into a three-story apartment building say they have cleared the woman of any wrongdoing.

    "Everything indicates that this was an accident resulting from several unfortunate circumstances that allowed the woman to set the train in motion in connection with the cleaning," prosecutor Pär Andersson told the press.

    Immediately following the accident, both Stockholm's public transit company SL and the line's operator Arriva said they believed they cleaner had stolen the train, but now claim they made no absolute statements.

    Poor lady. First, she finds herself on a runaway train while trying to make an honest living, gets injured from the crash, and then gets accused of taking the train for a spin. Arriva and SL should pay her medical bills, at least.

    How in the heck do you 'steal a train'? Just exactly where would you put it? In your garage? Park it in the street? Hide it in the back yard?

    This was in Sweden... there is no such thing as a medical bill. Health care is free!

    One less thing to worry about for the Swedish lady.

    Hoping for the day we can proudly say the same thing in the U.S.!
