Commuter train crashes into New Jersey station
« on: September 30, 2016, 01:00:51 AM »

More than 100 people have been injured and at least one person has died in a commuter train crash just outside New York City. An investigation is underway to determine what caused the collision.

A commuter train crashed into a station in New Jersey during Thursday morning rush hour, causing extensive damage and injuring scores of people.

Emergency crews responded at the scene of the train derailment, which closed Hoboken station, located across the Hudson River from New York City.
Authorities said at least 108 people were injured, several critically. One woman standing on the platform was killed by debris.

The train came off the track in a covered area of the station between the platform and waiting area, knocking down pillars and causing a metal roof structure to collapse.
"All of a sudden, there was an abrupt stop and a big jolt that threw people out of their seats," Ross Bauer, a passenger, told The Associated Press. "The lights went out, and we heard a loud crashing noise - like an explosion - that turned out to be the roof of the terminal...I heard panicked screams, and everyone was stunned."
