    Helicopter footage shows the scene at Hoboken Terminal, where a rush-hour train from Spring Valley, New York, crashed through a barrier at the end of the line and into the terminal's concourse, killing at least one person and injuring more than 100. 

    Several passangers said the 1614 train on the Pascack Valley Line never slowed down when it arrived at Hoboken Terminal at 8:45 a.m. Preliminary reports indicate the crash was accidental or caused by operator error, according to five law enforcement officials.
