One person aboard a commuter train that crashed in New Jersey this morning says he heard an “ungodly loud bang, like an explosion” before the lights went off and everyone went flying.
The crash happened at the height of rush hour at Hoboken station, a busy hub for commuters heading into Manhattan.
There are reports the train approached the station normally but suddenly lurched forward and crashed through a barrier at the end of the track.
At least one person was killed and more than 100 injured.
Witnesses report seeing one woman trapped under concrete and many people bleeding. Everyone trapped on the train has been rescued.
