SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — BART officials said the 24th Street Mission station in San Francisco has reopened following the death of a person on the trackway Thursday evening.

BART officials said based on witness accounts the person had entered the trackway voluntarily.

No foul play is suspected, BART spokeswoman Cheryl Stalter said. She said this was not an accident.

BART evacuated the 24th Street Mission station as part of the response to the incident. The station was closed for more than two hours and was reopened again by about 9:20 p.m.

The incident caused major delays throughout the system in all directions and prompted BART officials to cancel service from Richmond. Also, trains from Embarcadero station to Balboa Park station in San Francisco were traveling on a single track.
