The collision occurred on the regional line between Västerljung and Vagnhärad, and the train is still upright according to local newspaper Södermanlands Nyheter. The crash took place at an old crossing that is no longer in use according to a local resident the paper spoke to.

“Three people in the military vehicle are injured. There is also information that one person on the train has suffered minor injuries,” Södermanland Police said.

Sweden’s Transport Administration (Trafikverket) said it had stopped train traffic on the line due to “an accident” and that there is currently no estimated time for when it would resume.
