There are reports that at least three people are dead in a Hoboken, New Jersey transit train accident during Thursday morning’s rush that also left more than 100 others injured, many of them critically. Officials say the cause appears to have been accidental, although it’s very early in the investigation. About 250 people were on board the train when it jumped the tracks without slowing down, smashing into the station filled with morning commuters. This station was the end of a transit line for many trains. Images on social media show extensive damage to the train station, twisted metal and cars on their side. A senior transportation official says there are “structural concerns” about the Hoboken station. Witnesses say support beams appear to have buckled, causing part of the facility to collapse.
