16th Street BART Station In San Francisco Reopens Following Fatality On Tracks

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The 16th Street BART station in San Francisco reopened after a fatal incident involving a man caught under a train Friday evening, a transit spokeswoman said.

The emergency was reported at 7:22 p.m., according to BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost.

It’s too soon to know how or why the victim ended up on the train tracks, but as of 8:30 p.m. he had been confirmed deceased, Trost said.

Police interviewed witnesses at the scene and there was no indication of foul play, according to Trost.

The station reopened around 9:32 p.m., Trost said. Passengers still experienced delays late into the evening but BART personnel were working to restore normal service.

    Hopefully it was someone in their 20’s or 30’s and another tech job is available who is not dumb enough to find themselves under a BART train.

      Eddy, the commute up to the city is horrible. So many people. I wish I would have never come to the Bay Area.

        Why is there no update on this story? Is it because KCBS has moved on and only cares about the quick views initially instead of providing real news?
