Train service set to resume after deadly New Jersey crash

October 9, 2016

HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) — Rail service is set to resume at a New Jersey transit station damaged after a deadly train crash.

New Jersey Transit says eight of the 17 tracks at the Hoboken Terminal will reopen Monday morning.

The agency says Tracks 10 to 17 will be open for rail service, beginning with the first train. But Tracks 1 to 9 will remain out of service until further notice as repair work continues in that section of the terminal.

Investigators say the train was traveling at twice the speed limit when it crashed into the station Sept. 29, killing a woman on the platform and injuring more than 100 people.

Service on the commuter line into the busy station that connects travelers to trains headed for New York City has been out since.
