Officials said 76 people suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

A female passenger told ABC station WABC-TV in New York she heard a big "boom" as the train was coming into the terminal.

Another woman told WABC she believed the train was traveling at a faster speed than usual right before the crash.

The incident happened on LIRR track 6 around 8:30 a.m. The terminal is located near the Barclays Center.
