According to WNBC, both Amtrak and NJT deny that a derailment or collision took place. The disabled train (NJT 3224) got into the platform area somehow, and passengers disembarked normally, if a bit late.

According to NYC news, a SEPTA train overran at the 69th Street station in Philadelphia, just after midnight. Perhaps this is what is being referenced here?

I heard this on 1010 Wins this morning. Sounds like a move from a yard to track?

They said the loco derailed only, but access to tracks 1-5 was blocked from the west.

Tracks 1-4 are always blocked from the west by bedrock as they are stub end tracks.
Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?

No, they are blocked from the east - their access is from the west.

Duh! Thinking about travel direction and not compass direction.
