An out-of-service BART train has derailed on the Pittsburg-Bay Point line this evening, halting service beyond Pleasant Hill, according to a BART spokeswoman. The derailment was reported around 6:20 p.m., BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said.
The train, which was empty and headed back to the Concord yard, is now blocking the rails in both directions between Pleasant Hill and Concord, Trost said. BART officials are working to establish a bus bridge for stations beyond Pleasant Hill, Trost said. It is unclear at this time if the train operator was injured, but there were no passenger injuries in the incident, Trost said.
