CONCORD -- For the second time in the last two months, a BART train derailed along central Contra Costa County tracks, this time after a train operator attempted to maneuver the train from a side track onto a mainline track without approval, the BART board president said Friday.
Contra Costa prosecutors announced former Woodside Elementary School Principal Jennifer Sachs will not be charged with failing to report child abuse for her handling of teacher Joseph Martin from 2004 to 2006.
An Antioch man became the first homicide victim in Concord in more than a year when he was fatally shot near the downtown area Thursday night, authorities said.
No one was injured and no service was disrupted as a result of the derailment, according to BART police.
Concord police were on the scene late Thursday at Laguna and Adelaide streets investigating the city's first shooting death of the year.
He has, by our observation and from accounts of those who depend on him for information, done an excellent job leading the office since he was elected in 2010.
