HAYWARD, Calif. (KGO) -- The Hayward BART station has reopened after a brief closure this morning, following the discovery of a person underneath a train.

Currently trains in both directions are experiencing a 10-minute delay and are using a single track, while the northbound track remains closed as police continue to investigate the incident, according to Lt. Paul Kwon.
