Update 2/9/2022: This article has been updated to include information from BART Media Relations Manager Jim Allison 

At approximately 11:25 p.m., a BART train on the Orange-N line stopped between the MacArthur and Ashby Stations after a man was struck by the train.

BART Police and Berkeley Fire Department responded to the incident, evaluated the necessity of an evacuation of the train carts and retrieved the man. According to BART Media Relations Manager Jim Allison, as of 1 a.m., the man that was struck is still alive and was transported to Highland Hospital to receive medical treatment.

Allison described the incident as a “major delay,” adding that there is currently no service between stations “just north” of MacArthur depending on the line. Service between Antioch and Rockridge stations, as well as Ashby and Richmond, is still operational.

In an email update, Allison said that at this point there is no evidence of foul play.

BART Police, BFD and Berkeley Police Department have not provided additional information as of press time.
