HAYWARD (CBS SF) — Bay Area Rapid Transit service between Fremont and South Hayward stations were shut down for hours overnight due to a fatal accident investigation but were restored around 7:30 a.m.
A Richmond-bound train hit a person on the tracks just south of the South Hayward station at about 11:25 p.m. Tuesday, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.
The person was confirmed dead at the scene. It is unknown what the person was doing on the tracks at the time of the incident, according to Allison.
The riders on the train involved in the incident were transferred to another train. Further details about the incident were not immediately available.
An unrelated issue caused delays between the Hayward and Bay Fair stations Wednesday morning. Allison said riders should use Bay Fair station when heading out for their morning commute during the investigation.
