It had 16,855 inhabitants in 2010.OverviewLerum has a station on the Gothenburg commuter rail system and is a suburb of Gothenburg.The river of Säveån runs through Lerum municipality. 5km of it is surrounded by the nature reserve Säveåns Naturreservat, where bridges dating back as far as the 18th century as well as a variety of animal life and beautiful nature can be found.Lerum Train CrashLerum hit the world's news bulletins on November 16, 1987, when two Intercity trains collided just outside the local station, killing 9 and injuring 140.A control cable to the trailroad switches had been incorrectly reconnected after being dug up accidentally. When traffic was finally allowed to pass the station, the Gothenburg bound train was switched over to the opposite track where an outbound train was arriving. An off duty trainmaster, reading the paper in one of the locomotives, heard the train driver say "Helvete nu smäller det" (roughly translated: "Hell, now that's a crash"). He managed to open the side door and leap out, the trains collided when he was still in the air and despite doing this at 100km/h he survived with just a broken foot.The involved locomotives were RC4 1292 and 1300, they were scrapped on the spot.SchoolsThere are several schools in Lerum. (incomplete list) Torpskolan Rydsbergsskolan Aspenässkolan Lerums gymnasium
