Both NBC News and CBS previously reported at least three people were killed, citing conflicting reports from first responders.
However, Democratic Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, who represents Hoboken, said a transit official confirmed only one death to him.
Photos on social media show what appears to be a partial roof collapse at the station, with twisted metal and debris strewn over the station platform.
“The next thing I know, we are plowing through the platform,” Bhagyesh Shah, a passenger on the train, said. “It was for a couple seconds, but it felt like an eternity.”

The train came to a halt in a covered area between the station’s indoor waiting area and the platform. A metal structure covering the area collapsed.

“It simply did not stop,” WFAN anchor John Minko, who witnessed the crash, told 1010 WINS. “It went right through the barriers and into the reception area.”
Another passenger echoed the radio anchor’s remarks. Speaking with NBC, Nancy Bido, said she was in the first car of the commuter train and it “just felt like it never stopped. It didn’t slow down. It didn’t brake.”
“You felt like this huge, huge bang,” another passenger told the news station. “The lights went off, and then you started to see like – I was in the window seat, so I could see outside, what was happening, and the roof just collapsed on the first car.”
The crash happened at the height of rush hour as Hoboken station is a busy hub for commuters heading into Manhattan.
Hoboken is about 10 kilometres outside of New York City.
