New Jersey Transit kills 1, Injures 114

A commuter train on the New Jersey Transit Line smashed into the Hoboken Terminal on the morning of September 29th, killing one person and injuring 114 according to the Washington Post. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said the following regarding the crash: "The train came at a high rate of speed into the station and crashed through all the barriers, bringing it all the way to the internal wall of the Hoboken terminal. We have no indication that this was anything but a tragic accident." According to reports, some passengers were trapped under debris from the train and many people were openly bleeding from their injuries.

According to the New York Times, the New Jersey Transit was under a safety investigation by the Federal Railroad Administration before the accident. Officials began an audit of the transit in June due to an increase in the number of safety violations and a gap in leadership at the top of the organization. A series of violations were reportedly issued to the agency, and the Federal Railroad Administration had been considering other actions including a compliance agreement with the New Jersey Transit requiring them to make additional safety changes.

As a personal injury law firm dedicated to protecting the interests of victims, it is very disturbing to learn of the New Jersey Transit malfunction and the safety violations that occurred before the crash.
