Update 12:30 p.m.: Transit officials are now saying all trains are moving again and service is back to normal. BART is now stopping at the 12th Street station.

Original Story 11:34 a.m.: An unidentified person was hit and killed by a BART train in downtown Oakland this morning.

According to press reports, the person was struck by a northbound BART train at the 12th Street Station at about 9:10 a.m. The person was stuck underneath the train, according to BART.

No word on how the person got on the tracks, although BART officials do not suspect foul play, according to the Chron.

Richmond and Pittsburg/Bay Point-bound trains are still not stopping at the station, and passengers heading that way should probably get on at the 19th Street station in Oakland.
