NEW YORK (AP) — Mary J.

By Frank McGurty and Amy Tennery HOBOKEN, N.J. (Reuters) - A commuter train plowed into a station in New Jersey at the height of Thursday's morning rush hour, killing one person on the platform and injuring more than 100 as it brought down part of the roof and scattered debris over the concourse. Witnesses described terrifying scenes as the front of the train smashed through the track stop at high speed and into the Hoboken terminal, toppling support columns and creating chaos at one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York City area. One person died on the platform after being struck by debris from the crash, and 108 people were injured, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said.
