New York (CNN)A New Jersey Transit train plowed through a major station in Hoboken during Thursday morning’s rush-hour commute, killing at least one person and injuring more than 100 others, some seriously, local officials said.

Images posted on social media showed severe structural damage at the terminal — one of the busiest transit hubs in the New York metropolitan area — and part of the roof appeared to have collapsed.

A passenger, Leon Offengenden, said he was in one of the sections behind the lead car when the crash happened.

“The front car is essentially off the rails … into the building of the station, with the roof sort of collapsed around it,” he said.

The National Transportation Safety Board has launched an investigation into the cause of the crash.
