At least one person was killed and scores were injured Thursday when a commuter train slammed into a rail station and crashed onto a concourse, authorities said.
Photos from the scene show a crumpled New Jersey Transit rail car at the battered station amid mangled steel, cables and concrete. The crash occurred during morning rush, at about 8:30 a.m. ET.
“The train came into the station at a high rate of speed and crashed through all the barriers,” Gov. Chris Christie said. “This was an extraordinary tragedy.”
Christie said it was too early to determine the cause of the crash. He said 108 people were injured, and that the lone fatality was a commuter standing in the station who was hit by debris from the crash. He said the train’s engineer was injured but was cooperating with investigators
