Train crashes into New Jersey station, over 100 reported injured

A packed commuter train crashed into a station in New Jersey during the morning rush hour on Thursday, officials said, with more than 100 people reportedly injured.

The train failed to stop as it pulled into the transit hub of Hoboken, just over the Hudson river from New York, according to early photographs of the accident released by AFP.

"Due to a NJ Transit train derailment at #Hoboken Station, NJ, all PATH train service in and out of Hoboken Station is suspended," New York's official emergency information system tweeted.

New Jersey's emergency management system was reporting more than 100 people injured, while the New Jersey transit service said there were "multiple" injuries, ABC News reported.

Images on social media showed serious damage to the train station, with part of the roof apparently caved in.

Video showed the station in shambles with the train tangled in wires and debris from what appeared to be collapsed portions of the roof.

Emergency vehicles converged on the scene in response to the crash.
