Videos Of The Hoboken Train Crash Aftermath Are Horrifying
On Thursday, an NJ Transit train entering the Hoboken, New Jersey, station crashed into the station itself, injuring more than 100 people, according to NBC and local outlets. At least one person is dead, according to NBC News. Videos of the Hoboken train crash aftermath show a devastated station, petrified commuters, and crowds of emergency services striving to help.
The cause of the crash itself is unclear. Just before 9 a.m., during rush hour, dozens of commuters who were traveling into the station — which transfers directly to Manhattan — were injured when the train didn't stop when entering the Hoboken station. The impact shattered the roof of the station, and left debris shattered throughout the popular station, which is used by tens of thousands of commuters every weekday morning. Early reports suggest that the train either derailed or simply did not brake while entering the train station.
NJ Transit tweeted: "Rail service remains suspended in and out of Hoboken due to a train accident at Hoboken station ... HBLR service is suspended into & out of HOB terminal due to a heavy rail train accident at HOB. Service btwn 2nd St & Newport unaffected." It added: "NJT bus, private carriers, & NY Waterway are honoring NJT rail tickets/passes. PATH service in/out of HOB station is also suspended."
Just after 10.30 a.m., NJ Transit released a statement.
