A person was struck by a train at the Glen Park BART station in San Francisco Thursday morning, BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

As of 9:10 a.m., most southbound BART trains were being turned around at the 24th Street/Mission or Montgomery BART stations in San Francisco, Johnson said.

Trains bound for San Francisco International Airport were single-tracking around Glen Park and delayed by about 15 minutes, according to Johnson.

Other passengers were told to expect "modest" delays heading into San Francisco from the East Bay.

Information was not immediately available about the person, who was hit at about 8:50 a.m. and pinned under the train, Johnson said. But he was removed from the tracks shortly after.
