>> Chaos breaking out at rush hour in Hoboken, New Jersey, at least 108 people injured and one dead when a New Jersey Transit commuter train crashed through the station Thursday morning.>> You just heard like a kaboom, the whole place shook.>> Commuters posting dramatic photos on social media, appearing to show a train car that had barreled through the concourse, collapsing part of the station's roof.
00:00:26
>> The train came in at much too high a rate of speed. And the question is, why is that? And we won't know that for some time, as soon as we know, you can be sure we'll share it with the public.>> Linda Albelly was on the train and knew something was wrong just moments before the impact.
00:00:41
>> It seemed like as we were pulling in, the train was going way too fast, where we should have been stopping. It wasn't swelling up.>> Witness is telling Reuters' reporter Amy Tennery they've never seen anything like it.>> One worker I spoke to said he was right next to the train in the station when the crash occurred.
00:01:00
He said that the first car of the train was all but destroyed. He said that the roof practically caved in where it happened, and that there were responders who were crawling on their hands and knees trying to get to people inside the train. He had blood that was on the knee of his pants.
00:01:17
He seemed really shaken up.>> Hundreds of emergency workers rushing to the scene rescuing passengers trapped under mangled metal and transporting the wounded to area hospitals.>> Bumps, bruises, some walking wounded some lacerations and fractures as well.>> Hoboken which is on the west bank of the Hudson River just across from New York City is a major commuter hub with tens of thousands of people passing through the station daily.
