BART resumes service at Dublin/Pleasanton station after death on tracks

PLEASANTON, Calif. -- Regular train service is resuming at BART's Dublin/Pleasanton station after a death was reported on the tracks early Wednesday morning, an agency spokeswoman said.

A "major medical emergency" was initially reported just before 6 a.m. on the tracks, causing the transit agency to close the Dublin/Pleasanton station and stop running trains between that station and the West Dublin/Pleasanton station, BART spokeswoman Anna Duckworth said.

As of shortly after 8:30 a.m., the station had reopened and train service was resuming to it, Duckworth said.

More details about how the person died were not immediately available.
