    What to Know

    • Fabiola Bittar de Kroon, a 34-year-old woman who had just dropped off her child at day care, was the lone fatality in the crash

    • Investigators recovered one of two black box recorders from the train as they probe what caused the crash

    • At this point, Gov. Chris Christie says the only thing known right now is that the train was going too fast

    Sixteen of the more than 100 people injured when an NJ Transit train crashed into the busy Hoboken Terminal Thursday are still hospitalized. 

    A spokesman for the Jersey City Medical Center said Friday that 13 patients remain there, including two in intensive care. Those patients are in guarded condition, which is a step above critical condition. 

    Mark Rabson says 11 patients are expected to go home Friday. 

    Two patients remained at Hoboken University Medical Center. One patient was in fair condition at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.

    Investigators are working to determine what caused the crash, which killed one person -- 34-year-old Fabiola Bittar de Kroon, who had been on the platform. 

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that the only thing that is known so far is that the train came into the station too fast.

    The engineer, identified as Thomas Gallagher, was treated and released from a hospital Thursday. Christie has said he is cooperating fully with investigators.
