BART Train Kills Person in Oakland, Expect Long Delays

Posted By on Wed, Apr 3, 2013 at 12:32 PM


Update 12:30 p.m.: Transit officials are now saying all trains are moving again and service is back to normal. BART is now stopping at the 12th Street station.

Original Story 11:34 a.m.: An unidentified person was hit and killed by a BART train in downtown Oakland this morning.

According to press reports, the person was struck by a northbound BART train at the 12th Street Station at about 9:10 a.m. The person was stuck underneath the train, according to BART.

No word on how the person got on the tracks, although BART officials do not suspect foul play, according to the Chron.

Richmond and Pittsburg/Bay Point-bound trains are still not stopping at the station, and passengers heading that way should probably get on at the 19th Street station in Oakland.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
