Person trapped under BART train rescued


Service has been restored at the Downtown Berkeley BART station after firefighters rescued a person who was caught under a train this morning.

The incident occurred around 8:30 a.m., and BART officials closed the station at 8:38 a.m.

Around 8:50 a.m., the victim was injured but alive, and was being transported to Highland Hospital, spokeswoman Denise Gonzalez said.

The Downtown Berkeley station reopened at roughly 10:25 a.m.

The station was closed for nearly two hours, according to Gonzalez, and a 20-minute delay affected passengers traveling in all directions on the Richmond line.

A bus bridge was established between the North Berkeley and Ashby stations with the assistance of buses from the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, Gonzalez said.

It remains unclear how the victim ended up on the train tracks, according to Gonzalez.
