    This one seems to be a speeding incident which resulted in a train running through platform end buffers at low speed and riding up on to the platform a tiny bit. About 100 injuries caused by the sudden stop though worst is described as a broken leg.

    4 major incidents since April in North Eastern America alone. Amtrak in Pennsylvania (April), NJT at Hobken (Sept), LIRR at New Hyde Park (Oct) and now this. Plus there was the level crossing collision on the Metro-North in 2015.

    Very worrying. Hope all injured get well soon.
