UPDATE, 11:32pm: One person was struck by a BART train and killed this evening at the West Oakland station, halting BART traffic in both directions between Oakland and San Francisco, according to a spokeswoman.
The person was struck shortly before 10:15 p.m. on the San Francisco-bound tracks at the West Oakland station, according to BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost.
Authorities are currently working to clear the tracks so that the involved train can move back to the platform and allow passengers to disembark, Trost said.
The incident has stopped all trains between West Oakland and Embarcadero stations. BART officials hope to reopen the opposite track soon to allow trains to move on a single-track through the area, Trost said.
