Update 7:45 a.m.: BART is now reporting that service is restored between Hayward and Fremont in the Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions. However, you should expect miserable delays.

Original story 6:52 a.m.: Commuters in the far East Bay trying to get to San Francisco this morning will have to find a way to work other than BART.

According to BART, all trains south of Hayward were taken out of service after a death on the tracks last night.

KTVU reports that a person was hit by a train while on the tracks near the South Hayward station at about 11:25 p.m. Tuesday.

The train remained on the tracks this morning while police continued to investigate. No bus bridge will be set up to shuttle stranded commuters, and those looking to transfer to the Bay Fair station, just know: there's only limited service into San Francisco this morning.

Good luck.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
