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 area, where 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.

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.

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 train control.
9:49 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 when it's been proven to save
9:50 am
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 i'm matt lew lauer in, no this has been an nbc news special report. ? new life attracts sometimes ? ? all at once ?
