Major BART Delay
On Sunday, March 13th, at 9:45am, there is a major delay on the Pittsburg/Bay Point Line in the Pittsburg / Bay Point and SFO directions due to a train derailment. Currently, there is no service past Pleasant Hill as BART organizes a bus bridge to make service available.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the derailment, officials said.
