Many Casualties in NJ Train Crash

A woman has been killed and 108 other people injured, some of them critically, after a commuter train crashed into a railroad station in the US state of New Jersey. The train reportedly went through ticket barriers and into the reception area of Hoboken station. Images show extensive damage to the train carriages and station, with part of the building roof caved in. Witnesses described a scene of horror at the station, BBC reported. A huge emergency services operation swung into action following the crash, with firefighters and transport staff helping people from wrecked carriages. Hoboken is across the Hudson River from New York City. Many commuters use the busy station to travel into Manhattan. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie confirmed there had been one fatality. She has been identified as Hoboken resident Fabiola Bittar de Kroon, aged 34. Christie said she was struck by debris while standing on a platform. Governor Christie said the train’s driver—later identified as Thomas Gallagher, aged 48—was in serious condition and being treated at a local hospital but was cooperating with investigators. “We have no indication that this is anything but a tragic accident,” he added.
