A multi-vehicle pile-up on the E4 motorway near Helsingborg in southern Sweden has cost the lives of at least three people and with some 20 others taken to hospital according to Swedish police.

Up to 100 vehicles ploughed into each other just after 11 a.m. in slippery and foggy weather on the Tranastorp Bridge between Åstorp and Östra Ljungby. The E4 motorway has been closed in both directions.

This is the worst accident I have seen in the 30 years I have been doing this job,” Rescue Service Chief Jonas Hellsten tells the local Helsingborg Dagblad.

The pile-up began on the northbound carriageway but spread to southbound lanes.

“The entire bridge is full of vehicles in both directions; cars are on tip of each other and there is debris all over the road,” Helsingborg Dagblad’s reporter says.

Stole a train
In another accident in Sweden early Tuesday morning, a woman cleaner stole a train and drove it into a Stockholm building, according to Aftonbladet.se. Although there were people in the building at the time, no-one was hurt apart from the driver.

The incident took place at 2.30 a.m. early on Tuesday morning in Saltsjöbaden. Arriva’s Head of Communication Tomas Hedenius told Aftonbladet that the 20-year-old woman was certainly not a train driver, but employed as a cleaner.

“Somehow she managed to get in and illegally make off with the train,” Hedenius says.

Duty Police Officer Ulf Lindgren said: “It’s unbelievable that this didn’t cause a major accident both for those in the building and those on the train”.
