‘No foul play’ suspected in Friday BART fatality

“No foul play” is suspected in a fatality on BART tracks at 16th Street Station Friday night, according to BART officials.

“BART police interviewed witnesses” said BART spokesperson Alicia Trost, in a media statement.

And though the coroner is ultimately responsible for declaring cause of death, BART police believe “based on initial investigation there’s no foul play or accident type scenarios involved,” Trost said.

A BART train struck and killed an adult male on the tracks at 16th Street BART Station on Friday night at 7:22 p.m., which delayed rains well into the night. The station was closed for two hours, and reopened at 9:32 p.m., according to Trost.

Trains were rerouted throughout the night, and other trains weren’t allowed to go through 16th Street BART in order to relieve congestion, according to Trost.

Warning signs someone is contemplating suicide include talking about feeling hopeless or trapped, displaying extreme mood swings or becoming withdrawn, according to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.

If someone you know exhibits signs of wanting to commit suicide, call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or seek help from a medical professional.
