A New Jersey Transit train derailed and crashed through the station in Hoboken, New Jersey during the morning rush hour on Thursday and there were reports of injuries, according to US media reports and photos on social media.

Dramatic pictures posted by commuters showed a train carriage that appeared to have smashed right through the station concourse, collapsing a section of the roof, scattering debris and wreckage and causing devastation.

Hoboken lies on the west bank of the Hudson River across from New York City. Its station is used by many commuters traveling into Manhattan from New Jersey and further afield.
