Thursday night’s problems were only the latest in a series of 2017 mishaps that have brought new attention to the condition and management of the Northeast’s mass transit system.
Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) demanded a full investigation.
“Following last night’s slow speed derailment outside Penn Station New York I am calling for a full investigation into all potential causes. The safety of New Jersey citizens is paramount and we will do everything possible to ensure that NJ TRANSIT and Penn Station are safe,” said Christie.
