CONCORD — A San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit train has derailed and is blocking both sides of the track on the Pittsburg Bay Point line.
BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said in a statement Friday that the out-of-service train derailed about 6:20 p.m. as it was leaving the Concord Station and going to Concord Yard.
Service between Pleasant Hill and Pittsburg Bay Point has been suspended because both tracks are blocked at Concord, Trost says.
The train operator was not injured, Trost says, and BART doesn’t yet have an estimate of when the train will be cleared from the track.
As of 8:20 p.m., she says, 23 buses provided by AC Transit, Tri Delta and Contra Costa County Connection are now serving the closed BART stations.
