(Reuters) - Thousands who rely on the Hoboken terminal in New Jersey may face longer than usual commutes and heavy crowds on Friday as investigators try to determine why a commuter train crashed into the station, killing a woman and injuring more than 100 people. NJ Transit train service in and out of the Hoboken terminal, one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York City area, will be suspended on Friday, a day after a train plowed through the station and crashed during the morning rush hour. Investigators were to retrieve the event recorder, which tracks speed, braking and other data, from the rear of the train on Thursday night, Dinh-Zarr said during a news conference.
