CONCORD, Calif. —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 control center is working to set up a bus bridge for passengers, she says.
