Posted on May 11, 2011

A PATH train pulling into the Hoboken train station in Hoboken crashed into the platform injuring 34 riders, officials said. The train was arriving on Track No. 2 around 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, May 8, when it hit the spring bumper at the end of the tracks. Eyewitnesses said the accident happened suddenly. The train was screeching and then hit a barrier, said Humberto Roque, one of the passengers, through an interpreter. Mark Rabson, spokesman for the Jersey City Medical Center, characterized the injuries as "minor" scrapes and bruises. He said the patients at the hospital - five men and one woman - are all conscious, talking, and being checked for broken bones. The accident is being investigated.
