A woman stole a train on Tuesday and crashed it into an apartment building in Stockholm, Sweden, authorities told The Associated Press.

The train drove approximately one mile before derailing, the report noted. It was not clear why there were keys left unattended in the train’s cabin.

Officials said the woman was seriously injured in the crash, but nobody else was hurt. She was not named.
