Yup, you read that correctly.

A cleaning woman stole an empty commuter train in a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden and crashed it into a house today, injuring herself, local officials say.

Train Crashes Into Building

The four-carriage train was driven out of the depot for about a mile until it jumped the tracks and became lodged INSIDE A THREE-STORY building.

Police arrested a woman, who was hospitalized with serious injuries. Nobody else was hurt, and no motive for her jacking the train has been revealed.

Train Stolen By Woman

"We have only heard good things about her," said Tomas Hedenius, a spokesman for train operator Arriva. "We're investigating how this could happen."

Three families were inside the apartment building hit by the train but nobody was hurt.

"It's incredibly lucky that no one in the house was injured," a police spokesman said.

Forget why ... how did she possibly take control of a major mode of transportation?

Christer Wennerholm, a member of the Stockholm County Council's traffic committee, said: "It shouldn't be possible for unauthorized people to drive our trains."

Probably not.
