PLEASANT HILL, Calif. —
BART resumed normal service Friday after a train hit a tree, prompting serious delays at the height of the evening commute.
A moving train hit a tree, which had apparently fallen over, near the Pleasant Hill station.
Officials did not know of any reported injuries and the Contra Costa Fire Department said they had not been asked to assist in any way.
Trains were temporarily single-tracking between the Pleasant Hill and Concord stations but have since resumed normal service.
Some tragedies at hospitals might be unavoidable, but a mother and father who lost their 21 month old daughter at Children's Hospital Oakland say it's what happened after their daughter's death that has continued to torment them.
