Now we have this recent report:
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) Police from the San Francisco Bay Area's rapid transit system say two employees performing maintenance have been struck and killed by a train.
Saturday afternoon's accident on a track in Walnut Creek comes amid a strike by Bay Area Rapid Transit workers that has shut the system down. But some trains were being moved by managers.
It was unclear how the 1:45 p.m. accident occurred. BART Deputy Police Chief Ben Fairow confirmed the deaths to the Contra Costa Times (Web Link ). The newspaper said there are two tarps on the tracks about 150 yards apart.
