She was pronounced dead at the scene, prompting the closure of the station and service delays for nearly two hours, BART officials said.

BART trains single-tracked through the station and did not stop there until the scene was cleared and the station was reopened shortly after 6:20 p.m.

The cause of Baca’s death remains under investigation by BART police.
