BART Service Resumes After Body Found

BART service resumed Monday afternoon with 15-minute delays between the Pittsburg/Bay Point and Pleasant Hill stations, hours after police found a body on the tracks between the Concord and North Concord stations, according to the transit agency.

The resumed train service comes after the tracks were shut down in both directions between the Pleasant Hill and Pittsburg/Bay Point stations for about three hours.

A report came in around 8:50 a.m. of blood and human remains on the tracks, BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said. Contra Costa County coroner's personnel were called to investigate the death. Trost said she did not know whether the case was related to reports around 4:30 a.m. of a person walking on the tracks between the Concord and North Concord stations. She said BART personnel went to check the area multiple times this morning but did not find anyone walking on the tracks.

BART trains were shut down in the area to ensure the safety of emergency responders at the location of the body. County Connection provided bus service to the Pleasant Hill, Concord, North Concord and Pittsburg/Bay Point stations as the coroner's office responded to the area.
