SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Balboa Park BART station in San Francisco has reopened Tuesday evening after a fatality was reported on the tracks, prompting major delays throughout the Bay Area.

The incident was reported at 4:35 p.m. when a person was reportedly under a train, BART spokesman Jim Allison said. That person was pronounced dead and the San Francisco medical examiner responded to the scene.

Trains were not stopping at the Balboa Park BART station for nearly two hours following the incident.

Photos from commuters on Twitter show police tape blocking the station entrance.

The Balboa Park BART station was reopened at about 6:20 p.m., Allison said, and trains are resuming normal service.

The person’s death remains an ongoing BART police investigation, Allison said.
