People are treated for their injuries outside  a Transit

Summary: On the morning of September 29, 2016 at 8:00 am in new jersey, a transit train crashed on the barrier at the end of the track.It resulted into a fatal accident were 108 are in critical state and their 1 reported dead person. witnesses say that the train was going at full speed and did not stop at the terminal it was suppose to, that was suppose to transport the commuters to Manhattan.

Connection: A connection to U.S History is Ellie Whitney's cotton machine invention during the time of slavery.Whitney's invention connects to this event , because the cotton machine invention was intended to help the cotton industry, but prevented slavery from being abolished. Same with trains, trains are built to help commuters go to different places but in times could end in a fatal accidents that effect peoples life.

Conclusion question: Why do you guys think the train didn't stop? and what do you think train engineers in the U.S and around the world could do to prevent from this from happening again

  2. I believe that the train did not stop because either the operator was distracted or, the train could not be stop manually. It probably could have something wrong with it. I think train engineers in the US should try and make these trains more safe and prove to the people why they should still use them.

  3. I believe that there could have been something wrong with the engine and that's why it did not stop.

  4. I think that there must have been a malfunction with the engine. I don't think that someone would intentionally hit people with a train, with a possibility of ending their lives. I think that trains should be inspected before hand, to prevent any accidents that may occur.

    1. I never said they purposely tried to kill someone but i think engineers must do a better job on the inspections of trains while in the making.
