Truck on tracks halts BART trains between San Francisco, Oakland

Trains are once again moving after BART suspended service between San Francisco and the East Bay after a vehicle entered the pathway and ended up on the tracks, authorities said.
At 7:40 p.m. on Wednesday BART officials said a truck went through a fence and was on the tracks between West Oakland and 12th Street stations causing system wide delays. In about an hour's time, the obstruction was cleared from the tracks. 
West Oakland Station was temporarily shut down, but reopened at 9:15 p.m. 
Commuters were urged to seek other forms of transportation while BART crews responded to the incident.
The BART train did not strike the vehicle, and no injuries have been reported. Details about the driver's status and how the vehicle appeared on the track were not immediately available. 
AC Transit had set up a bus bridge between San Francisco's Transbay Terminal and 19th Street.
