A New Jersey transit train crashed into the Hoboken station Thursday morning, causing at least three deaths, more than 100 injuries and travel chaos for commuters making their way into Manhattan during rush hour.

The crash happened around 8:30am, and involved the No. 1614 Pascack Valley line train. The train left Spring Valley, New York at 7:23am and was scheduled to arrive in Hoboken at 8:38am, but was running late.

Passengers on the train said the it never slowed down as it approached the terminal, crashing at high speed into the terminal which tens of thousands of people use to travel into New York City every day.

Three people have been confirmed dead and more than 100 people have been injured – with multiple in critical condition.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News that the crash did not appear to be deliberate or an act of terrorism, however the exact cause is still under investigation. It’s unclear how fast the train was going when it crashed into the terminal.

‘There are fatalities,’ a senior transportation official told the New York Times. ‘There are a significant number of injuries. The train was going very fast. There are structural concerns about the facility. ‘
