A New Jersey Transit spokeswoman says that more than 100 people were injured, some critically, when a commuter train plowed into the Hoboken station.

The train from New York crashed during the Thursday morning rush hour. It caused serious damage to both the train and station. Witnesses reported injuries, including one woman who was trapped under concrete and many people bleeding.

The spokeswoman, Jennifer Nelson, says she doesn't know yet how fast the train was going when it ran into the rail bumper at the end of the line.

Radio station WFAN anchor John Minko told New York radio station WINS that the train "went right through the barriers and into the reception area."

Rail service was suspended in and out of Hoboken, which is 7 miles outside New York City.
