SAN FRANCISCO -- A train ran over a woman at San Francisco's 24th Street BART station Monday, but moved right over her and did not injure her, BART officials said.

The woman, who is in her 50s, jumped in front of the oncoming train about 9:50 p.m., as the train was entering the station, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said. The oncoming train went right over the woman as it passed through the station and did not injure her as she lay on the tracks.

BART police found the woman with no visible injuries and held her for a psychological evaluation after speaking to her on the platform, Trost said.

BART officials announced major delays on the Daly City line in both the Pittsburg and Dublin directions before shutting down the station entirely at 10:11 p.m. The station reopened at 10:32 p.m., Trost said, and service was fully restored in all directions.
