Train Crash in Hoboken,NJ

A New Jersey Transit train plowed through a major station in Hoboken during Thursday morning's rush-hour commute, killing at least one person and injuring more than 100 others, officials said.

Witnesses said the train overran its stopping point, slammed into a bumper block, went airborne and hurtled through a passenger concourse at about 8:45 a.m. at the terminal, one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York area.
The person killed was standing on the platform when the train came into the station, two officials briefed on the matter said.

Bhagyesh Shah, who rode in the back of the front car on his way to work, said the train didn't appear to slow as it entered the station.
"The next thing I know, I'm on the floor. We are plowing through something ... and when the train came to a stop, I could see the parts of the roof on the first car and some of the debris next to me," Shah said.
Images posted on social media showed severe structural damage at the terminal, where part of the roof appeared to have collapsed. Witnesses described people helping bloodied passengers, some trapped by debris, from the packed front car.

Im on my phone but there are already pics surfacing if anyone could be so kind. Twitter and Instagram are flooding.

So far only 1 confirmed death

A potentially key piece of evidence has been recovered in the hunt for what caused a deadly crash of a commuter train in New Jersey, authorities said Friday afternoon.

Investigators retrieved one of two event recorders from the New Jersey Transit train that hurtled past its stopping point Thursday at the Hoboken station and rammed through a passenger concourse, NTSB Vice Chairman Bella Dinh-Zarr said at a news conference.

Packed with passengers, the train slammed into a bumper block, went airborne and hit the concourse at about 8:45 a.m. during rush hour, killing a woman waiting on the platform and injuring more than 100 others.

The recorder, retrieved from the locomotive in the back of the train, could provide information on the train's speed, use of brakes and throttle position.

The NTSB sent the recorder to its manufacturer in Kentucky for downloading, Dinh-Zarr said.
Dinh-Zarr told reporters the NTSB team in New Jersey is on a fact-finding mission and won't come to any conclusions about what caused the crash, she said. That decision will come later from different NTSB officials.

A second event recorder and a forward-facing image recorder, located in the front of the train, have not been recovered yet because of asbestos, structural damage to the train station and other dangers, Investigator in Charge Jim Southworth said.

"Once it is safe, we will go in there. We just want to make absolutely sure. The weather has been a bit of a hindrance," said Dinh-Zarr.

There is no time-sensitive element to recovering the recorder, so investigators will take time recovering it, Dinh-Zarr said.

Investigators have interviewed train crew members, including the engineer, a conductor and a rear brake man, Dinh-Zarr said, declining to reveal what they said. Blood and urine samples were sent to a laboratory for toxicology tests, she said.

Of the 114 people injured, four patients remained hospitalized Friday evening.

Three patients are in stable condition and are expected to be discharged from Jersey City Medical Center in the next 24 hours, hospital spokesman Mark Rabson told. One person is in intensive care in guarded condition, he added.

Fabiola Bittar de Kroon, 34, of Hoboken, died after debris struck her while she was on the platform, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said.

The crash has indefinitely suspended New Jersey Transit train service to and from the Hoboken station, one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York area, forcing thousands of people to adjust their commuting plans.

New Jersey Transit posted a customer notice on its website advising commuters of their options until the damage can be assessed and repaired.

A separate train system, PATH, continues to run through Hoboken. Hudson-Bergen Light Rail service has been restored into and out of Hoboken and will continue to operate on a full weekday schedule.
