BART train service through Contra Costa County was delayed Friday night after a tree fell onto the tracks.

It happened between Concord and Pleasant Hill BART stations at about 5 p.m.

A train did hit the tree. But damage to the train was minimal and the agency says no one onboard was hurt.

For a while, BART was single-tracking trains around the affected area while they worked on clearing the track way.

All tracks are now open.
