As sightseers flocked to the train that remains lodged inside a Stockholm house after a cleaning lady crashed it on Tuesday, officials have backed down and admitted the incident may indeed have been an accident.

Meanwhile, police and officials are still none the wiser as to why a 22-year-old cleaning lady was driving the train in the first place.

Why is it that Sweden never gets it until they really GET IT!!!
The very thought that there is no security or adequate safety systems that could have prevented this tragety is unthinkable!
No ATM(look it up) system on the line,really?
This is 2013,there is simply no acceptable excuse for such dagis level neglegance!

I don't have to look up what an ATM is as I already know. The one closest to my office is just outside the main entrance.
I also know what an Automatic Train Control system is.
