More than 100 people were reportedly injured and at least one person died in a commuter train crash on the New Jersey Transit in Hoboken, New Jersey, on Thursday morning, reports NBC News. NJ Transit has released several details about what kind of train crashed in Hoboken and what commuters can expect for now. The exact train that crashed was #1614 on the Pascack Valley line. The train was coming from Spring Valley, New York, when it crashed into the Hoboken Terminal building on Track 5, according to NJ Transit. Its arrival time was supposed to be 8:38 a.m. ET, but the trains were reportedly running late. The crash happened right around 8:45 a.m.
NJ Transit should not be confused with PATH trains, which transport passengers between Newark, New Jersey City, Hoboken, and New York City. People who take NJ Transit can transfer to the PATH at Newark Penn Station or the Hoboken Terminal, which is where the crash occurred. Hoboken, is one of NJ Transit’s busiest stations with 15,001 boardings per weekday.
NJ Transit services in and out of Hoboken have been halted, as have Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (another transportation service operated by the NJ Transit corporation) and PATH services. Seeing as more than 300,000 people commute via NJ Transit alone on any given weekday, this is bound to rock hundreds of people's work schedules. For now, they can use their NJ Transit tickets to take NJ Transit buses and ferries.
