JERSEY CITY, NJ (AP / CBSNewYork) – Police say a woman escaped serious injuries after jumping in front of a commuter train in New Jersey.

Port Authority Police spokesman Al Della Fave says the woman landed in the middle of the track as a PATH train rolled over her near the Grove Street station in Jersey City Thursday.

Della Fave says emergency services officers found the woman in a pocket that was deep enough that she did not sustain life-threatening injuries.

The woman, whose name has not been released, was taken to Jersey City Medical Center.

The incident halted service to the Grove Street Station.

During that time, NJT buses were advised via radio to seek alternate PATH stations.
