The Skotterud derailment occurred on 1 October 2010, at Skotterud, Norway, when an InterCity train from Oslo (Norway) to Stockholm (Sweden) derailed due to a cracked wheel. Forty people were reported injured.
Passengers reported loud noises, sudden braking and a crash that some thought resulted from a collision with a vehicle. Most managed to get out of the wrecked carriages themselves and an emergency reception center was set up at the nearby town hall in Skotterud.
