A train operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, crashed into the platform about 9 a.m. as it was entering the station in Hoboken, injuring about 45 people, CBS New York reported. Those people were being treated at area hospitals, according to the report.
A Port Authority spokesman wasn’t immediately available for comment.
Spiros Hatiras, chief executive officer of Hoboken University Medical Center, said 10 patients were taken there, all of whom had minor injuries.
“They’re being evaluated right now, but there are no major injuries and no casualties,” Hatiras said in a telephone interview. Emergency medical staff told them there were about 33 people transported to hospitals, he said.
All other train service is operating, according to the PATH website, which directed passengers needing to get in or out of the Hoboken station to use NJT Light Rail.
