HOBOKEN — Nearly a year after a commuter train crashed into the platform at the Hoboken train terminal, killing a local mother of a toddler, the National Transportation Safety Board says their report will probably not be released until the "first quarter of calendar year 2018." On Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016, an NJ Transit train crashed into the end of the train line in the terminal. Debris rained down and killed Fabiola Bittar de Kroon, who had dropped off her 18-month-old daughter at day care in Hoboken before leaving to go to work. More than a hundred people were injured. de Kroon's husband, on a business trip, came home to pick up their daughter. The family has since filed a wrongful death and survival action in state Superior Court in Hudson County against NJ Transit. The NTSB has been investigating the cause of the accident and has so far only released a preliminary report saying that recording devices indicate the train was traveling at more than twice the limit for entering the station, 21 miles per hour. Since the crash, the train engineer has been diagnosed with sleep apnea and state officials have pushed for Positive Train Controls to be installed, automatic controls that would slow a train entering the station. Congress has mandated that train companies install PTC by December 2018. Christopher O’Neil at the NTSB confirmed that the final report on the cause likely won't be released until next year.

The city auditor said he would disclose the $10 million debt if he had been given the numbers. He said he only got them the day before. This was withheld to protect first the mayor and clearly the conflicts with Ravi Bhalla. Bhalla is conflicted with Suez and that's not the end of the conflicts. This gives Hoboken one good strong option with Jen Giattino. Jen Giattino, conflict free and trusted by everyone.
