Cracked Wheel Caused Derailment

A Norwegian train on its way to Stockholm from Oslo derailed Friday evening near the Swedish border.

There were around 40 injuries, one serious.

Norwegian investigators tell Swedish Radio News that a crack in a wheel was responsible for the derailment, causing a car to flip over and another to leave the tracks.
