HOBOKEN, NJ – Thursday's deadly NJ Transit crash in Hoboken — which killed at least one person and injured dozens of people — is snarling travel for tens of thousands of commuters.
A Warren commuter said, "What a mess... feel sorry for all those hurt.. it's going to be a long commute home. I plan on leaving as early as I can and getting to Penn (NYC Penn Station) and taking a Midtown direct train. Wish me luck. I'm definitely working from home tomorrow."
PATH, NJ Transit and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail service into and out of Hoboken was suspended following the crash, which occurred on the Pascack Valley Line.
PATH service is still running between the Journal Square Station and 33rd Street, and the Newark and World Trade Center stations.
