"It's very sad everytime something like this happens", said Tobias Björk at the "emergency slaughter services".
NAcka police said the horses were all privately owned and came from a farm nearby. A spokesperson from Connex told DN that "it was lucky the horses tried to run away from the train and not towards it".
As DN noted, "it's not likely that a horse would have tried running towards a speeding train".
A simliar accident happened in Nynäshamn less than a month ago when five horses from a riding school were killed on a train track.
