New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told reporters the fatality involved a woman who was struck by debris from the crash while she was standing on the platform.

She was later identified as 34-year-old Fabiola Bittar de Kroon. She had moved to the area from Brazil earlier this year, the Associated Press reported.

Christie told CNN that 114 people were injured and that the train's engineer, who was also "critically injured," had been released from the hospital and was cooperating with law enforcement officials in the investigation.

The crash occurred when Train No. 1614 came into the station at high rate of speed, burst through the barriers, and breaking into the interior wall of Hoboken terminal, Christie said.

The train, coming from Spring Valley in New York, was on the Pascack Valley Line.

At least three people were in critical condition and eight people were in serious condition, an official from Jersey City Medical Center told reporters. There were also 40 walk-ins at the center.

"We don't have any reason to believe there will be any more fatalities," Christie added.

Two days after the incident the train still remains in the terminal, blocking the tracks for other trains, due to "environmental and structural issues."

Officials also declined to speculate on the cause of crash, citing the train's high rate of speed.

"We have no indication that this is anything other than an accident," Christie said.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo added that the death toll could have been higher.

"The silver lining is that there was only one fatality thus far, as the destruction is significant and the power of the train coming in is devastating in its impact," he said.

In the days following the crash, investigators found no signal abnormalities on the tracks leading to the terminal, and nothing about that track that would have "affected the performance of the train," the National Transportation Safety Board Office of Public Affairs wrote in an update.

Investigators are reviewing video footage from other trains at the Hoboken terminal, though the footage from the train that crashed is currently inaccessible.

One person who appeared to be on the train described the incident on Twitter. "Thankfully all I got was a crack to my head," the person said.

Eyewitnesses told BuzzFeed News they saw injured people lying on the ground and that the roof had partially collapsed.

Michael Browne said he saw paramedics treating four to five people who were on the ground.

"There was blood on them and they weren't moving," Browne said. "They looked seriously injured."

Magda, who did not want to give her last name, said that when her train pulled into the station, she could see an area was blocked off.

"There was a a big crowd of people with their phones out taking photos, so I knew something was up," she said. "Once I got closer, I saw the train had crashed and the ceiling was broken in."

She also said she saw a handful of injured passengers, including a woman laid out on the track.
