Highlands woman wakes up alone on NJ Transit train

Highlands woman wakes up alone on NJ Transit train”

Connelly told the outlet she'd paid almost $1,000 on a flight home, driven six hours to the airport, endured a layover in Detroit and landed in Newark on Wednesday. Following a long journey to her home state of New Jersey, Connelly was on a NJ Transit train trying to get to Middletown when she fell asleep on the ride.

"Only I would wake up on an empty NJ Transit train parked and shut down inside a trainyard two hours from my home", Connelly tweeted. "There is no one on", she said from the desolate train in a video she posted to Twitter.

"I literally just fell asleep on my train", she said. I'm on a train. "No one answered. The train was completely empty and shut down for the night".

"I fell asleep reading biology note cards", she said. The student tweeted that officers told her that it was her fault for being irresponsible. Connelly attempted opening the doors, but to no avail, so she was forced to call 911 for help.

That's why the train took her all the way to Raritan which is around 2 hours from her home.

"I was on the wrong train in general". But, after they got there, she didn't get the response she expected.

But, she said, she was on the incorrect train and the man who checked tickets did not check hers.

NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said officials are investigating Wednesday night's incident.

"It's extremely rare for this to happen", she said. "It's the conductor's responsibility to check the train".
