OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A person was struck and killed by a BART train in Oakland Monday morning, prompting major service delays on the Fremont line.

BART spokesman Chris Filippi said the train struck a person south of the Lake Merritt station at approximately 11:40 a.m. and that BART Police and and the Oakland Fire Department were responding.

The fatality involved a Richmond-bound train. The circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately known.

    So, why didn’t Jeffrey Dahmer investigate his own killings like Bart and the rest of the murdering railroads killing hundreds of people to normal drivers one? That there were squirrels in the fridge.
