(AUS) Vandals crash train at Hurstbridge

Hurstbridge derailing: Keys used to steal train 'could have been bought online'

Keys virtually identical to those used to steal and crash a Metro train on Wednesday morning are being sold online, sparking fears a train could be hijacked with passengers on board.


Vandals gained access to a train inside a yard at Hurstbridge station about 1.50am on Wednesday, started the engine and drove the train for about 50 metres, derailing and crashing it into another train in the yard and destroying security fencing. Repairs could cost more than $3 million.

Metro Trains has admitted stolen keys circulating on the black market are a problem and says a program to fit trains with more secure locks is "in its infancy".[/b]




A fairly seriously accident to say the least. They apparently entered a part of the yard that doesn't have CCTV cameras.
