NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)  More than 100 people were hurt Wednesday when a Long Island Rail Road train hit a bumping block at the end of a track at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.

.

The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team to investigate the incident, which happened around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday as Train No. 2817 from Far Rockaway was pulling into the terminal on Track 6.

.

The NTSB team arrived in New York City by 6 p.m. and began examining the scene, according to NTSB investigator Jim Southworth. Wearing hard hats and vests, federal investigators were examining the train, the tracks, the signal system and had recovered the trains event recorders late Wednesday.

.

Meanwhile, as CBS2s Jessica Layton reported, exclusive photos provide a close look at the crash that turned a typical morning into pandemonium.

.

Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Tom Prendergast said the train went up and over the bumping block. It then crashed into an employee area on the platform.

.

Fire officials also said a piece of the rail pierced the bottom of the train.

.

Obviously, the train is supposed to stop short of the bumping block, Prednergast said. It did not do that, so its one of things we will look at as part of investigation.

.

Transit officials said the lead wheel assembly and one other axle derailed as a result of the impact.

.

The maximum speed permitted in the area just ahead of the bumping block that the train hit is limited to 5 mph, Southworth said.

.

Following the crash, the front train car was left with broken windows and a bent metal door, while elsewhere in the terminal, the bumping block was destroyed and a room for employees at the end of the track was crushed, CBS2s Dave Carlin reported.

The NTSB investigation was expected to last three to seven days. Anyone with photos, video or pertinent information was asked to email witness@ntsb.gov.

.

There were 430 passengers on board the train at the time of the crash. Officials said 104 people suffered non-life threatening injuries.

.

At the scene, people were seen nursing bumps, bruises and bloody noses. Some people were carried away on stretchers while others were loaded onto FDNY buses.
