A horrible accident occurred this morning in Hoboken, NJ.
A commuter train apparently failed to stop on its way into the Hoboken station and crashed, leaving many injured and at least 3 dead. This comes only days after an explosive device was found in a NJ train station.
NBC New York reports:
At least three people died and up to 100 were hurt when an NJ Transit train crashed into the station in Hoboken at the height of Thursday’s morning rush, leaving twisted piles of metal and bricks and causing part of the highly trafficked terminal to collapse.
Preliminary reports suggest the 8:45 a.m. crash – involving train No. 1614 on the Pascack Valley Line from Spring Valley – was accidental or caused by operator error, according to five law enforcement officials. They stressed it was early in the investigation, though.
