BART is experiencing major delays this morning, after a woman was fatally struck by a train.
According to BART spokesperson Alicia Trost, service at San Leandro Station was halted on reports of a person beneath a train that was headed towards Daly City.
Trost initially said that the person was a minor, but that she didi not know the person's age or gender. As of 11:30 a.m., Trost has revised those remarks, instead saying that the victim was an adult female who jumped in front of the train.
The Chron reports that witnesses at the station say they saw the woman walk off the platform and get hit by the train.
Service at the Oakland Coliseum and San Leandro stations during the investigation, Trost says. It resumed at around noon.
