Woman injured in Hoboken train crash gets $1.5M from NJ Transit


A woman who was injured in the Sept. 29, 2016 crash of a commuter train into Hoboken Terminal has reached a $1.5 million settlement of a lawsuit she brought against NJ Transit.

The New Jersey Law Journal first reported NJ Transit’s settlement with LaTonya Story, 45, of Garnersville New York, who sued the agency and Metro North. (NJ Transit runs Metro North west of the Hudson River commuter service under a contract.)

NJ Transit’s insurance is covering the cost of the settlement.

Story was commuting to her job as an executive assistant on the day of the crash. She was riding in the last car of the Hoboken bound Pascack Valley Line train #1614, when it crashed through a bumper at the end of the tracks and into Hoboken Terminal.
