Train Crash New Jersey
One Woman Dead 100+ injured
A train came into Hoboken station New Jersey, opposite New York City, at speed during the morning rush hour and was stopped only when it derailed and crashed into a platform, bringing down the roof and covering the platform with debris. One woman died when she was hit by part of the station roof collapsing on her. Most of the injured were on the train, including the driver who was critically injured and is in hospital. Most of the passengers on the train will have been commuters from New Jersey (and further down line) to Manhattan.
Train passengers had to smash windows to escape from the train and others had to be pulled out from under concrete.
No Positive Train Control
Train systems are available that will slow a train that is travelling too fast but this had not been installed.
