Arriva Sweden fined 500.000 SEK for accident 2013

Arriva was fined yesterday for Work-environment Crime (is that the correct word) for the accident where a runaway train crashed into a house in Saltsjöbaden 2013.
They accept the fine of 500 000 SEK (~52 710£).
They also shall pay 20 000 SEK (2108£) to the woman injured in the accident.

--END OF NEWS--

Now to some reflection.
500 000 fine for an accident that could have gotten someone killed and damaged a house and injured a woman badly?
And 20 000 to a woman that while laying in coma in the hospital was accused in world press of stealing the train when she was innocent?
Yes, money cant undo it, but still...
