Train crash causes severe damage to Hoboken station; N.J. rail service suspended, injuries reported


    A rush-hour train accident Thursday morning at the rail station in Hoboken, N.J., led to suspension of PATH and other rail service in and out of the station, according to New Jersey Transit.

    The commuter-rail service did not specify whether there were injuries, but reports on the scene indicated more than two dozen people had been injured, according to ABC News. The Associated Press said there was no immediate word on a number of injuries.

    PATH passengers were advised to take the New Jersey Transit Light Rail, and New Jersey Transit said the New York Waterway ferry, New Jersey Transit buses and private carriers were accepting rail tickets.

    Police were saying there was no indication of a nefarious or criminal in the crash, which was being treated as an accident. The National Transportation Safety Board indicated that it was beginning an investigation.

    Commuters tweeted photos and videos that showed significant damage to the station.
