  • A man was struck and killed Wednesday afternoon at San Francisco's Glen Park station.

A person who was struck by a BART train at the Glen Park station in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon has died, an agency spokeswoman said.

The person was struck around 4 p.m. at the station, located at 2901 Diamond St., BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said.

Medical personnel responded and pronounced the person dead at the scene minutes later, Trost said.

Authorities are investigating the incident, and trains are not stopping at the Glen Park station, she said.

Power has been turned off on the northbound rail line but trains are single-tracking through the station on the southbound tracks, Trost said.
