What began as a routine commute today for some NJ TRANSIT rail riders descended into chaos when their train crashed at the Lackawanna terminal in Hoboken.
Television and internet news reports depicted injured passengers, in addition to apparent massive physical damage at the Hoboken site.
A television news report just stated that three people have died, and that more than 100 people were injured, although this statement has not been independently verified.
While further details were sketchy at this time, NEW JERSEY BUSINESS received a statement from the Port Authority: “The Port Authority PATH service into and out of Hoboken Station has been suspended indefinitely due to an incident involving a NJ Transit train in Hoboken Terminal this morning. Travelers are urged not to go to Hoboken Terminal at this time.”
Emergency responders are at the crash scene at this time. Overall, the event’s impact on commuters in the coming days remains unclear.
