The woman killed beneath the wheels of a BART train at Balboa Park Station Tuesday* afternoon has been identified by the San Francisco Medical Examiner's office as 67-year-old Mary Baca, a city resident.
Baca was struck by a train at around 4:35 p.m., triggering a two-hour closure of the station during commuting hours. It is, at this time, uncertain how or why she found her way onto the tracks.
Calls and messages for BART have not yet been returned. We will update this story when we learn more.
