A postal delivery van crashed into a train in Dalarna on Monday morning. It appears the van driver couldn't brake properly and as the train was speeding past his vehicle veered straight into the side of it.

The press office at the train operating division, Mellersta Banregionen, said that the crossing only has "half bars that only cover the actual traffic lane on the road", according to DN. Nobody was injured but the train has been taken out of service while it is being inspected by accident investigators.
