A train accident at Hoboken Station early Thursday morning has left hundreds injured, and details only seem to be getting worse.

According to eyewitness and first responder reports, the New Jersey commuter train ran full speed into the Hoboken terminal and off the tracks at around 8:38 a.m. EST after failing to brake, seriously injuring the engineer as well as passengers.

Unfortunately, the crash caused the station’s roof to collapse, potentially injuring other commuters as well.

It’s currently unclear whether this was an operator or system error, but officials do not believe this was a deliberate attack of any kind.

While initial reports suggested a “mass casualty response” from EMS, only one fatality has been confirmed as of yet.
