A 220-meter-high wind turbine collapsed and crashed into the forest in the Viksjö wind farm outside Sundsvall on Saturday.

No one was injured, but the wind farm will stray closed until an expert accident team investigates the accident site, SVT writes.

It is suspected that oil has leaked from the wind turbine, and people are asked to stay away. The investigation of the accident will start on Monday.

The wind turbine was 220 meters high.
