SAN FRANCISCO – A woman escaped uninjured after a commuter train passed over her but did not hit her on tracks at a San Francisco station, transit officials said.
The woman jumped in front of the oncoming Bay Area Rapid Transit train at the 24th Street station on Monday night, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost told the Contra Costa Times.
The 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 in her 50s with no visible injuries. She was held for a psychological evaluation after police spoke to her on the platform. Her name was not released.
Officials said there were delays on the Daly City line in both directions before the 24th Street station was shut down completely around 10:11 p.m.
The station reopened about a half-hour later and service was fully restored in both directions, Trost said.
