HAYWARD -- A man was struck and killed by a Daly City-bound BART train at the Hayward station Tuesday afternoon, the second such incident in less than eight hours, officials.
The victim appears to be 40 to 50 years old, according to Capt. Thor Poulsen of the Hayward Fire Department, although officials did not immediately release his identity.
Northbound trains have been halted at the south Hayward station, but southbound trains are moving between Bay Fair station and the south Hayward station, according to a BART spokesman. AC transit buses are bringing passengers between the two stations.
Of the 56 trains in use on the BART system tonight, 25 of those are late, the spokesman added.
Power was shut down to the tracks while authorities removed the body, according to Poulsen. The station was shut down until 7:06 p.m., per a BART spokesman.
There are major delays reported throughout southern Alameda County, according to a BART spokesman.
It was the second BART-related fatality on Tuesday.
Around 9:05 a.m., a person was killed after being struck by a train at the Colma station. The person was not immediately identified, and officials did not say how the person ended up on the tracks.
