A death at a San Francisco BART station on Wednesday afternoon is a suspected suicide, police said today.
A man was struck by a train around 4 p.m. at the Glen Park station at 2901 Diamond St. and was pronounced dead minutes later.
According to witnesses at the scene, “all signs point to a suicide,” BART police Detective Rick Martinez said.
The man was a 55-year-old San Francisco resident, according to the medical examiner’s office. The Chronicle reports that the man has been identified as Gordon Toye.
The death prompted the closure of the Glen Park station and power was turned off on the northbound rail line as trains single-tracked through the station on the southbound side, according to BART officials.
The station reopened shortly after 6 p.m.
