One emergency worker described a "horrendous exploding noise" and said passengers were crawling from the scene on their hands and knees. "We ran over and there were a lot of people kicking out windows trying to exit the train," the man, identified only as Mike, told WABC. "...The second half of the first car was completely destroyed."
