After a preliminary investigation, the National Transportation Safety Board has found that the New Jersey Transit train that crashed into the Hoboken Terminal station on October 1st, 2016 was going twice the prescribed speed limit at the time of the crash. The train was allegedly traveling at 21mph, violating the 10mph speed limit. New Jersey Transit has implemented a new rule in the wake of the crash, requiring that the conductor join the engineer each time a train pulls into either Hoboken Terminal or the Atlantic City station. The NJ Transit engineer was alone at the time of the crash, and has no recollection of the event. Federal investigators estimate that a final report on the crash could take up to a year or more to complete.
