You would think trains would be safer to travel than planes well not anymore.
At least one person has died and dozens more have been injured, including “multiple critical injuries” after a NJ Transit commuter train carrying 250 people crashed into the Hoboken’s historic train station this morning, authorities said.
The crash seriously damaged the Hoboken Terminal building itself, leading to its evacuation and to both NJ Transit and PATH, which also runs trains out of the station, to suspend all service there.
“There is heavy structural damage to the terminal, which is why it was evacuated,” said Jennifer Nelson, director of media relations for NJ Transit. “It is not safe to go in there right now.”
