A “major medical emergency” has been reported Thursday afternoon at BART’s Powell Street station in San Francisco, according to the transit agency.
Around 2 p.m., a person was reported on the tracks at the station while a train approached, and a collision may have occurred, BART spokesman Chris Filippi said.
The Powell Street station is closed while emergency crews respond to the scene, and trains are single-tracking through the station, Filippi said.
San Francisco Municipal Railway is offering mutual aid to BART passengers and AC Transit will accept BART tickets as fare for parallel bus service.
