It's a bad day on BART, that's for sure.

Another person was struck and killed this afternoon when a northbound train was moving through the Hayward station, creating major delays for the afternoon commute.

The train struck a man at about 4:18 p.m., closing the station to commuters. Emergency crews are on the scene now and the coroner is en route to the Hayward station, says Lt. Tyron Forte.

Forte said commuters can expect major delays, especially in the immediate area around the Hayward station. Specifically, trains running along the Fremont to Daly City and Fremont to Richmond lines in the Hayward area are late, according to BART.

A bus bridge is being implemented to assist riders who are stuck.

This is the second person that was killed in a BART incident today. Around 9:06 a.m., a person was hit and killed by a BART train at the Colma station, shutting it down for nearly two hours as crews investigated.

  • 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.'"
