Person dies on tracks at West Dublin/Pleasanton station

Station reopened after three-hour delay

One person died this morning after being found under a BART train at the West Dublin/Pleasanton station, which was closed for part of Wednesday morning.

BART officials said the West Dublin/Pleasanton station reopened around 10:45 a.m., and trains are running from the East Dublin/Pleasanton station in both directions.

Service had been closed from about 7:30 a.m. until an Alameda County coroner could complete an investigation into the death. The person's identity has not yet been released to the public.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

May this person RIP and the family be shown love at this time. Let's hope it was an accident and not another suicide. Some people just give up on life and feel there is no hope.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
