The cause of the crash is currently unknown. The train was number 1614 on the Pascack Valley Line which departed from Spring Valley at 7:23AM (9:23PM AEST) and was due to arrive in Hoboken at 8:38AM (10:38PM AEST).

New Jersey PATH and New Jersey Transit service into Hoboken has currently been suspended. The Hoboken train station is a major commuting hub for New York City, providing service to PATH and New Jersey Transit.

"The train simply did not stop," a bystander told CBS New York.

"It was for a couple seconds, but it felt like an eternity," Bhagyesh Shah, a passenger, told NBC. "I saw a woman pinned under the concrete. A lot of people were bleeding, one guy was crying."

The New Jersey EMS is currently reporting over 100 patients, and New Jersey Transit said that multiple passengers were still trapped an hour after the event. According to NBC, there are "no initial signs Hoboken train crash was terror related or deliberate act". As of 9:37AM local time (11:37PM AEST), passengers were no longer trapped. CNN later reported that the train's conductor survived the crash and was speaking with investigators.
