Truck accident stalls south Stockholm trains
07:44 CEST+02:00
Commuter train traffic south of Stockholm experienced major delays on Monday after a truck ripped off an electricity cable on the tracks shortly before the morning rush hour.

Stockholm region train operators SL said buses had been drafted in to ferry passengers between Flemingsberg and Tumba stations, while commuter trains and cross country trains were forced to await news of repairs.

A truck driver lost control of their vehicle early on Monday morning, as the carriage tumbled down on the tracks at Tullinge station.

SL said the train traffic had stood still since 5:51am.
