Another train has crashed into a barrier at the Hoboken, New Jersey terminal. The most recent crash was at about 8:45 am today when a commuter train crashed into the barrier at the terminal. One woman tragically died, apparently while she was standing on the platform. Over 100 passengers were injured. The NTSB and the Federal Railroad Administration are investigating. NTSB has been recommending "Positive Train Control" for many years now and that will be looked at. The two Event Recorders will be pulled and examined.
In 2011 a PATH train hit a barrier at the end of the line in Hoboken, also around 8:30 am, and almost 3 dozen passengers were seen at area hospitals. In 2009 a PATH train crashed into the barricade as it arrived at the 33rd Street Station, also around 8:15 am.
