A woman obtained the keys to the train and drove it away before it crashed into the building. The woman was injured in the incident and there are no reports of injuries of people in the building.

Police spokesman Lars Bystrom says the woman was seriously injured in the crash in the early hours of Tuesday and was flown to a Stockholm hospital. No one else was injured.

Bystrom says she was arrested on suspicion of endangering the public.

A spokesman for train operator Arriva, says the woman, born in 1990, stole the four-car train at a depot outside Stockholm.

She then drove it about a mile (1.6 kilometers) to the end station on the railway line, where it jumped off the tracks and crashed into a three-story building. The motive was unclear.

Swedish cleaner not to blame for train crash

A cleaning lady accused of commandeering an empty Swedish commuter train which crashed into a house did not steal the vehicle, officials say.

Prosecutors in the capital, Stockholm, said that they had closed the criminal case against the woman, who sustained serious injuries in the accident.

They said they now believe she started the vehicle by accident as she was cleaning it in the middle of the night.

The woman had initially been accused of stealing the train.

On Friday, the prosecutor said the cleaner was no longer suspected of wrongdoing.

"Everything suggests it was a pure accident where several temporary and unfortunate circumstances caused the woman to set the train in motion when she was cleaning," Paer Andersson said in a statement, according to AFP news agency.

No-one was hurt in the building which was hit when the train came off its tracks in the early hours of Tuesday in the suburb of Saltsjoebaden.

The train operating companies, Arriva and SL, may now face an investigation into a possible breach of safety laws.

A spokesman for Arriva said it was unfortunate that the woman, who was detained in hospital on suspicion of destroying public property, had been described as a thief.
