A New Jersey Transit commuter train crashed into Hoboken Terminal during rush hour Thursday morning, killing at one woman and injuring more than 100 at one of busiest transportation hubs in the Northeast, Gov. Chris Christie (R) said. Christie said 108 people were hurt, including the train’s operator, who was critically injured. He said the operator was cooperating with the investigation. “This train came at a high rate of speed into the station and crashed through all the barriers, bringing it all the way to the internal wall of the Hoboken terminal,” Christie said. He added that officials would not speculate on the cause of the crash. “We have no indication that this was anything but a tragic accident.”
