Transcript for What Investigators Will Be Looking for in NJ Transit Crash
We've heard that there isn't any reason as of now to believe there something sinister behind us. Right we don't know anything right now of course investigators haven't ruled anything out because they're just beginning. An and we don't even know if they've even talked. To that engineer just yet the NTSB is coming down here to look at that because when your when you're talking about a train crashed. You're gonna look at the engineer you're gonna look at the maintenance are gonna look at the tracks you're gonna look at all these different things to see what could've possibly triggered this. One of the witnesses I spoke to said you know what. I was on this train for some five to seven stops all of the stops were fine until this. And you've been here on the C and cents this morning how many how many people we're here and able to to talk with media. I'm in what were they sang. You know a lot of people here were just saying it sounded like a law that they didn't know what was going on so many were telling me about. How they missed that train you know one man missed trained by thirty seconds I was getting calls from people who said I just missed that train by a few minutes so people were thinking about my gosh I could've been standing. Right there waiting for the train as I would any morning. Had that same thing from business owners because this station and is right across from what's one of the main roads here in Hoboken where there's a Duncan donuts all kinds of restaurants and bars the it was right there. The W Hoboken is right then and so there are a lot of people if you. Still heard this and it's exactly told me that and it sounded like a bomb going off even from. Outside and across the street so definitely it this was. Huge explosion and we can't really see from here but pictures from inside and from witnesses show. Large amounts of structural damage I'm roof collapse saying. Until what do we know about what's happened inside as far as the structure and any chance that this will be open anytime soon. Well they're not gonna open it just yet because they're trying to determine if this building is actually safe because what happen was. That it actually hit some beans and so when it hit those beams the roof. Came crashing down and and that is what they believe is also you know what caused so many injuries. The woman there's a person who. Who died and that person appears to have been struck by some of this debris and then we're still learning more about that. But a very sad situation but but they're looking to see if the structure is actually safe.
