BART is reporting major delays on its Pittsburg-Bay Point and Richmond lines this morning because of an equipment problem. In addition, a death on the tracks in Colma closed that station for about two hours this morning, disrupting service along that line.
According to BART spokesman Jim Allison, a trackside problem between the 19th Street-Oakland and MacArthur stations is responsible for the East Bay delays.
The issue is not related to the 2 hour closure of the Colma station this morning after a person was killed on the tracks there, Allison said.
The incident was reported at about 9:10 a.m., BART spokesman Jim Allison. The victim was under a train, he said.
The San Mateo County coroner’s office has responded to the scene, and BART police are investigating the death, Allison said.
There was no immediate information about the victim’s age or sex.
At 11:13 a.m., BART announced that the Colma station had reopened, and that trains are stopping there.
The incident initially caused delays of 15 to 20 minutes, but Allison said trains are back on schedule.
