It is unknown how the person got onto the tracks or their condition, according to BART spokesman Linton Johnson. Medical staff members have been sent to attend to the person, who became trapped around 8:15 a.m., he said.

As of 9:45 a.m., service has been restored to Glen Park Station. Service into San Francisco from the Peninsula and East Bay is restored as well. Earlier, BART had been turning trains around at 24th Street and Montgomery stations before single-tracking trains through Glen Park Station.

Some lines are still experiencing residual delays, Johnson said. Trains are moving along to the San Francisco International Airport, but passengers on those lines were experiencing 15-minute delays. The Richmond to Fremont line is reportedly running on time.

As a result of the incident, passengers are experiencing modest service disruptions during the morning commute. Passengers are advised to listen to station announcements to know if they will have to transfer trains to get to their destination, he said.
