0 added sugar, 0 fat, 0 artificial sweeteners. oikos triple zero greek nonfat yogurt, this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer. >> and good morning, everyone. i am matt lauer with this nbc news special report. i want to show you a chaotic scene that's unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey, just about two miles from where we are. a packed commuter train has crashed, as you can see, into a rail station there. you're looking at live pictures from the scene. no specific word on injuries. however, we have heard there are multiple injuries at the scene. part of the building, as you can see, has collapsed. there's severe damage. federal investigators are being sent to the scene.
7:46 am
what are you seeing? >> what i can tell you is there are emergency vehicles all throughout this area. many of the streets have been blocked. so i've literally been running through the streets, trying to get up to the scene. as you pointed out, what happened this morning shortly around the 9:00 hour, just beyond the height of the rush hour, a train coming into the station. witnesses say the train simply did not stop. it kept going and ran into the platform, into the reception be standing, waiting to get on this train. as you point out, it caused mass chaos. there are reports of mass casualties, but we don't know the extent of the injuries at this moment. this has been called a massive casualty incident. there are emergency crews all throughout the area. roads have been blocked. i am right now trying to get exactly on to the site so i can give you more information.
7:47 am
height of the rush hour, a train coming into the train station simply did not stop. it kept going. we don't know at this point what the speeds of train was. all of those details will come out as this incident is unfolding. emergency crews are on scene trying to get passengers who i have maybe injured, get them help, and to assess exactly what happened here and the extent of the injuries and the damage. >> and i just want to say, i'm being told this is an area where so it is truly a terminal. when you say that train didn't come to a stop, it would have had nowhere else to go but off the end of the track and right into that terminal building. >> matt, that seems to be exactly, precisely the case here. i'm not exactly on the scene, so i'm making my way to it, but what i can see is chaotic. people have been forced to not go into the area, including me.
7:48 am
run as fast as i can into the area. but you're right. it's an area where the trains, they converge here coming into the train station. it's a new jersey transit commuter train. it's above ground. the train just didn't stop and plowed right into that passenger terminal. >> and obviously traveling at a pretty high rate of speed based on the damage we're seeing. i want to bring in tom costello. he covers transportation for us. tom, i guess the first thing ntsb, they send teams there quickly. >> yeah, that's correct. obviously the immediate concern is evacuating all of the injured, treating the injured, and then trying to determine what happened. this will become a federal railroad investigation, as you suggested, and the ntsb, in coordination with the federal railroad administration. one big concern here, matt, is going to be did the train and did the system have positive
7:49 am
federal authority is there is no positive train control on this particular track. you may recall from the philadelphia train crash you and i covered 18 months ago, that particular incident occurred when there was no positive train control on a stretch of track, and the train derailed going at an excessive speed around a curve. positive train control is essentially an automatic braking system. it brakes the train if the engineer fails to do so as the train approaches some sort of an immediate stop zone or slow down zone. in philadelphia, we had 200-plus injured and eight dead. we are hoping that we don't have anywhere near that kind of scenario here, but the immediate concern that federal railroad authorities have had for years is the slow rollout of this positive train control automatic braking system, why have various jurisdictions and authorities been slow to put it into effect
7:50 am
lives, and at this early indication from federal authorities, there's no positive train control on this stretch of track. >> and we don't know how many injuries have resulted from this crash, but keep in mind there would be people on that train and there would have been people standing near that platform. this could be mechanical error, it could be human error, it could be something else. too early to rule out anything, including a potential deliberate act. again, the investigation will come after the rescue operations take place to find out who may be trapped on that platform and the moments that connect us don't happen overnight. they happen one morning at a time,

carolina. take a look. they got flash flood warnings in effect. a flash flood emergency. some areas have picked up 12 inches of rain overnight and as you can see, it has turned streams into raging rivers. it is going to continue. here's the latest. 12 million people at risk for flooding from north carolina all way up into pennsylvania. you can see on the radar the heaviest precipitation between wilmington and fayetteville. we are seeing moisture making it way up into pennsylvania. bulls eye for this, the heaviest rain going forward is going to be in western virginia, west virginia to the west of washington, d.c. we're worried about ellicott city as well where they have that flooding in july. for today as we said, heavy rain, plus a lot of gusty winds. it will be raw today.
8:20 am
radford in ellicott, maryland. what's the latest there? >> reporter: well, al, we're in the middle of a flash flood watch here in the baltimore and d.c. area. we're expecting to see up to five inches of rain in the next 24 hours. this is a part of a larger system that as you mentioned has hit north carolina and virginia. can you hear the emergency services crews here behind me at ellicott city, maryland. they're cleaning up, sandbagging, trying to prepare this city and prevent what happened two months ago almost to the daytw hundreds more rescued. that's when six inches of rain struck in two hours. that's why emergency services are here trying to keep these people safe as they hit the roads today, al. >> thank you. again, still reeling from that flooding. so this is going to be a very touch and go situation. of course, we will keep you posted during the day on msnbc and "nightly news" tonight. that's what's going on around the country. here's what's happening in your
8:21 am
i wonder why savannah and hoda are sitting on the couch? >> do you think it's because i look particularly good in my suit. maybe not. the book turned into a blockbuster in "the girl on the train." a woman obsessed with a couple she watches on her daily commute. this guy right here, justin theroux is to co-star in a story where nothing is really as it seals. >> she said you yelled at her. >> no, that itself not what happened.
8:22 am
she hit me. >> you are drunk. >> i'm not drunk, tom. >> my wife is scared of you. >> of what? >> i don't know if that's a joke or not. let's start with child abduction. >> that's not how it happened. >> you and i know what you are capable of. >> hey, justin, how are you? >> i'm great, thank you. >> we we have mutual friends that tell me you are anything but creepy. you are a really nice guy. >> i'm glad. >> yeah. >> and yet, i keep reading about you, everybody raves how well you play creepy. >> thanks. i guess if i am doing a part that's creepy i guess or and i play a lot of creeps sometimes i guess that's a good thing. i guess it means i'm doing my job. >> i like how you end on and up note. which is good. >> kind of creepy. >> i mention this as a major
8:23 am
that doesn't always mean that the book translates with el to the big screen. why do you think this one does? >> well, i think it does only because it was very faithfully adapted. the direction is fantastic and we were really mobbed up with a lot of very, very good actors. so you know, we can only hope we do service to the book and sort of honor what the author had in mind. >> without, i know there is a lot we want to be give the basics of the story line in your opinion. >> essentially, the story about a woman named rachel who rides the train. she's in a slightly depressive state, drinking too much and she projects on to other people that she looks out the train window, what we all kind of do in life. she builds this sort of fantasy life around this couple and then a woman goes missing and all
8:24 am
it lubricated in a way. >> i remember my dad drove through a particularly nice neighborhood one day, my dad said something to the effect, don't assume you know what's going on behind those beautifully painted doors. >> yeah. >> this is kind of that personified. >> it's that and i would go further on that, life as we take the train, the corridor a bunch. you are not only looking into people's windows sometimes, are you looking in the backs of their houses. >> that's right. >> it almost tells you more than the front. some people's literal dirty laundry is hanging out back. it's kind of grave, a beautiful sort of see other people's lives. >> you said you rely on your gut when are you choosing a role. does it usually serve you well? >> it has.
8:25 am
that don't, that someone has told me are smart to do or things that are good to do, i usually don't enjoy myself as much as when i find something that i just love doing. >> one of the things you seem to love doing the a show called "the leftovers." and the creator of that show said something about you i was reading. he says, he's a ken doll, but he's every ken, astronaut ken, interior designer ken, i'd be lying if i didn't say there's a part of me that wants to strangle him. but in terms of what he can do as an actor, he can be much bigger than he is in terms of notoriety. the reason he's not is by design. it's his choice. is that true? >> i don't know if it's true. i, i think, you know, i've made decision again based on what is going to make me happy. so i never had any particularly, particular interest in doing things that will advance me to another level or do something, you know, i just always dos what
8:26 am
if it's right in acting. >> you do it so well. justin, always good to see you. >> always good to see. here's look at what's happening on channel 20. it's taken a full year. today we'll learn more about the mental state of an accused
8:27 am
his wife as she called 911. a road so narrow that normal cars can barely pass. when trucks try to go through, it's a big deal. the rule changes for independence pass. so much good news to share. we are all clear, 25 around 225, and that's been the biggest delay all across the city. southbound 25 still recovering at colorado because of earlier wreck. but we've dropped down from an 80-minute trek downtown to the tech. we are finally clear. and south of 225, woo back up in the 50s. rain in western colorado a good bit of the morning and will continue. we'll see a few clouds in the east. and the best rain comes later
8:28 am
it's really going to be pretty impressive throughout western colorado and tomorrow morning. we're getting reasonable, meaningful moisture. a little bit during the day. and then more after sunset tonight. rain, snow line looks like 11,000 feet. we'll get three or 4 inches of snow above 11,000 feet with moderate rain below those elevations. 60s and 70s for mountains and west with sunshine early. we hit 70s an day. that leaves us with a temperature of 82 degrees. and dry around here despite the increase in cloud cover. tomorrow we have a small chance for a thundershower. and very small rain chances over the weekend. we have gusty winds and anticipated for monday as we warm back up before a big cooldown the early part of next
8:29 am
8:30 am
this is an nbc news special report. here's matt lauer and savannah guthrie. >> it's 10:30 here on the east coast, 7:30 out west. this is an nbc news special report. unfolding right now in hoboken, new jersey. a new jersey transit train crashing into the terminal there. at least three people confirmed dead, more than 100 others injured. we're told that a number of them are critically injured. >> this of course happened at the height of rush hour earlier this morning. we're already seeing images of terrible destruction. witnesses are speaking out this morning and sharing stories of chaos and panic. >> everything was typical.
8:31 am
everyone to get into the first car, so fortunately i was stuck in the middle. myself and about six other people were in between the cars. we approached the station, and the train just felt like it never stopped. it didn't slow down. it didn't -- it didn't brake. i mean, i don't know for sure if it didn't brake or what was happening. so as soon as the train just kept going, there was -- the lights sof people started yelling. and the people that were standing in between on the other side, on the second -- in the second car, getting ready to come out of that door, were thrown on to our side. a young lady actually that was thrown from that, her legs caught between the doors just as soon as it was about to make that full stop. but we were able to pull her up fortunately, and the gentleman
8:32 am
people, but he had a gash in his forehead. he hadn't known he was bleeding. i didn't fall, fortunately, because there were people in front of me. >> you can hear the fear in her voice. one of the survivors. at least three dead, 100 injured in this train crash this morning. >> and that view from above gives you a really good idea of what this situation is. this isn't a through station. this is a terminal. these tracks come to an end at that specific point in hoboken. if a train comes in and does not track, in this case right into the terminal building. >> while we're already hearing these differing accounts of how much, if any, the train had slowed, let's go to our correspondent rehema ellis, our correspondent. what are you hearing? >> good morning. we're standing in what police are calling a staging area. i can see the waiting room of the terminal where that train crashed into. there are emergency vehicles
8:33 am
trying to secure this area in terms of getting the injured away from the area. as you've pointed out, witnesses, some of them, passengers on this train were able towa walk away, others wer not. i spoke to one woman in the third car of the train. she said it happened really fast. she said everybody in the third car was jolted. some people were standing because they were about to get off the train. and she said it was crazy. and crying. and she said she was able to brace herself because she was still sitting, so she put her hands on the backseat of the seat in front of her, and she was jolted in place. she was able to walk away from this. her concern, she said, is that so many other people may not have been able to walk away. the first thing she did when she got out of the car, she said she called her loved ones to let them know she was okay.
8:34 am
able to walk away from this, savannah. as she pointed out, so many others were not. we are still waiting for a press briefing here. we're told a short time from now, officials will give us more information on the extent of this accident. we don't know how fast the train was going, but we do know that it was approaching this terminal because this is the last stop, as matt was saying. this is where people are to get off. some of them were standing, and that made it even worse. this you front car -- remember, she was in the third car. she felt that people in the front car may have taken the biggest of the burden in terms of the injuries. savannah? >> and there may have been people on the platform as well right there. ra rehema, thank you very much. >> tom costello going to look at the investigation side. obviously first they take care of the injured, then figure out what happened.
8:35 am
engineer survived the impact, would be to talk to that person. >> that's absolutely right. what was he or she doing? were they paying attention? what did they see? was the equipment operating normally? i got to tell you, i've ridden this train many times. i used to live in new jersey and took that train into manhattan. to come in that fast into hoboken station i find to be rather strange because normally you crawl into hoboken station. it's a very slow snail's pace. so why was this so fast that it literally rammed right into the station and caused such terrible structural damage and of course so many people injured and potentially killed. we do also know that this line on new jersey transit does not have that automatic braking system called positive train control. that's been a big issue, as you know, for the last dozen years or so following major train crashes, really, from california to new york. but on the new jersey transit line n that stretch anyway, no
8:36 am
so clearly this will probably ramp up the discussion about whether that should have been in place. but you have to wonder, why would the engineer be realizing as he or she was coming into that station and having presumably done this many times before, that you've got to slow down. there are many warning signs and speed signs. >> and by the way, nobody on the platform that we've heard from -- we heard from a witness a second ago -- said there was any horn blaring or warning from that train. priority would be to speak to the engineer, if that is possible. also, these trains have what is referred to as a black box, don't they, tom? >> they absolutely do. on many of these trains -- now, i cannot speak to specifically what equipment was on this particular train. but many trains do have the equivalent of a black box that allow them to immediately know the speed, whether there were any brakes applied, what the speed was coming out or going into a turn, all of that is going to be critically
8:37 am
tom costello, as always, thank you very much. the ntsb has officially launched a go team to get to that scene. >> so once again, a chaotic scene in hoboken, new jersey, across the river from new york city. three dead, perhaps as many as a hundred injured. we'll return you to "today."

tries to get passengers who may have been injured, get them help and to assess exactly what happened and the extent of the injuries and the damage. >> and rehema, i want to say, i am being told this i where many tracks come to an end. so it is truly a terminal and when you say that train didn't come to a stop, it would have had nowhere else to go but off the end of the track and right into that terminal build something. >> that seems to be exactly the ways here, i'm not on the scene, what i can see is chaotic. people have been forced to not go into the area, including me,
