At least one person died and more than 70 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.
Sources familiar with the investigation told NBC 4 New York a woman in her 30s who was on a platform in the station died. There were conflicting reports about other possible fatalities as emergency crew worked to extricate victims from the mangled wreckage. Hospital officials initially reported two more deaths, though later clarified they had only received wounded patients.
