HOBOKEN, N.J. (WTXF-AP-STORYFUL) -
The train came to a halt in a covered area between the station's indoor waiting area and the platform. A metal structure covering the area collapsed.
"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."
According to NJ Transit, "Rail service in/out of Hoboken is suspended due to the incident. HBLR and PATH are also suspended into and out of Hoboken Terminal. NJ Transit bus, private carriers and ferry services are cross-honoring NJT rail tickets and passes."
Hoboken is the final stop for several train lines, and the images show a train that appears to have gone through the bumper stop at the end of a track.
Hoboken is -- seven miles outside New York City -- is New Jersey Transit's fifth-busiest stations with 15,000 boardings per weekday. It's also a transfer point for many commuters on their way to New York City.
