    A New Jersey Transit commuter train crashed into the Hoboken terminal during rush hour, causing major structural damage and numerous injuries. Emergency services say three people have died.

    Local media are reporting “major structural damage” and “multiple injuries,” while the first responders are setting up triage.

    The accident occurred around 8:30 am local time, and involved the 1614 train on the Pascack Valley Line. The cause is still unknown.

    Preliminary reports said “approximately 100 victims.” Officials have confirmed more than 100 people were injured, and that everyone has been evacuated from the train. The casualties have been taken to area hospitals.

    Several people who were on the train tweeted they felt “lucky to be alive.”

    Images of the accident posted on social media showed mangled metal, wires and debris scattered all over the floor. It appears the impact was powerful enough to bring down part of the ceiling.

    “It simply did not stop,” WFAN anchor John Minko, who witnessed the crash, told 1010 WINS. “It went right through the barriers and into the reception area.”
