A New Jersey Transit train crashed into the Hoboken station this morning injuring about 100 people.

TV footage shows the crash caused serious damage to both the train and station. Witnesses reported scores of injuries, including one woman who was trapped under concrete and many people bleeding. 

The train came to a halt in a covered area between the station's indoor waiting area and the platform, collapsing a section of the metal shed roof. 

The train went over the front bumper block, through the concourse where travelers access other lines and rested at the wall to the waiting room, Larson said.

Jersey City Medical Center is treating 51 patients with 3 in critical condition and 11 serious. Rail service was suspended in and out of Hoboken.

Shortly before 10 a.m., ambulances from multiple counties, including Essex, Hudson and Union, began staging in the parking lot of a Jersey City Target store, waiting to be dispatched to the devastating scene in Hoboken.

Prayers go out to everyone in Hoboken and their families!
