BART Reopens After Woman Run Over by Train in Possible Suicide Attempt

UPDATE: Officials say a woman got onto the tracks early this morning and lay down between the rails before a train ran her over. The operator of the train, which was entering the station at 35 mph, saw the woman on the tracks and hit the “stop” button, but the train didn't halt in time, according to BART spokesman Linton Johnson. The woman survived with only cuts and bruises. Read more after the jump.

BART riders should expect “residual” delays this morning after an emergency closed down the Glen Park BART station.

The station reopened shortly before 10 a.m.

SF Weekly reporter Lauren Smiley shot photos of the scene, where BART officials were not allowing people to enter the station even after a woman was carried out on a stretcher.
