April 19, 2017 16:44 pm · 2 comments

BART trains are single-tracking through the Walnut Creek station, but not stopping, because of someone threatening to jump off of the station platform, an agency spokesman said this afternoon.

The incident began at around 1:30 p.m. and BART police have responded to negotiate with the person and deescalate the situation, BART spokesman Taylor Huckaby said.

The station has been closed for hours, but as of 4:15 p.m. trains
began passing through one side of the station without stopping.

Parallel bus service is running between Pleasant Hill, Walnut
Creek and Lafayette. Passengers headed to Walnut Creek will need to use the. bus bridge. Passengers should speak to station agents to be directed to the
buses, he said.

The cops should ask the person, Do you want a push because you are causing a lot of inconvenience standing there?. I am tired of hearing about all of these whacked out people. Let them jump and get it over with. Every one of these dorks cause massive problems and they are not worth it.
