HOBOKEN, N.J. -  A state lawmaker says one person was killed and two critically injured when a commuter train plowed into the Hoboken station.

Democratic Assemblyman Raj Mukherji, who represents Hoboken, said a transit official confirmed the death to him. A New Jersey Transit spokeswoman, Jennifer Nelson, earlier said that more than 100 people were injured in the crash.

The train from New York crashed during the Thursday morning rush hour. It caused serious damage to both the train and station. Witnesses reported injuries, including one woman who was trapped under concrete and many people bleeding.

The National Transportation Safety Board is opening an investigation into the crash, and is sending a team of investigators to the scene.
