No BART train service is going through Walnut Creek this afternoon because of someone threatening to jump off of the station platform, an agency spokesman said.
The incident began around 1:30 p.m. and BART police have responded
to negotiate with the person, BART spokesman Taylor Huckaby said.
Pittsburg/Bay Point trains are turning around at Lafayette and
SFO-bound trains at Pleasant Hill until the situation is resolved, and
passengers can expect delays of more than 20 minutes, Huckaby said.
Parallel bus service is running between Pleasant Hill and
Lafayette and passengers should speak to station agents to be directed to the
buses, he said.
