More than 100 people were injured this morning and at least one dead in a Hoboken New Jersey train crash. The commuter train crashed during rush hour impacting the terminal at full speed, breaking through a wall, and collapsing the roof of the building. Authorities still have not determined the cause of the crash.
Witnesses say that the train did not even appear to slow down before reaching the terminal. “It never slowed down” one passenger said. “We all went flying” said another. After the impact passengers and bystanders in a panic rushed to exit the train and terminal. Some were still trapped from the fallen debris.
From Fox News:
One emergency worker described a “horrendous exploding noise” and said passengers were crawling from the scene on their hands and knees. “We ran over and there were a lot of people kicking out windows trying to exit the train,” the man, identified only as Mike, told WABC. “…The second half of the first car was completely destroyed.”
