(CBS SF) — Bay Area Rapid Transit service was halted Monday morning on the Dublin/Pleasanton line after a person was apparently struck and killed on the tracks.

BART reported the incident just before 11:30 a.m. Monday. Video from Chopper 5 showed what appeared to be a body covered with a yellow tarp next to the tracks in between Castro Valley and West Dublin/Pleasanton stations along Interstate 580 in an area where there is no pedestrian access.

BART spokeswoman Anna Duckworth said shortly after noon that a person on the tracks was hit by a train, and that service was shut down in both directions between the two stations.

Bus shuttles were set up to get passengers past the closed area of the tracks, Duckworth said. As of shortly before 1 p.m., Duckworth said limited service was resuming, with trains single-tracking through the area.
