A 22 year old El Cerrito man was killed tonight after being struck by a BART train outside of the West Oakland Station around 10:15pm. The 22 year old who was identified by the Alameda County Coroners Office as ,Tyler Worden, was said to be walking along the San Francisco bound side of the tracks outside the platforms where passengers and the public are not permitted. Officials are still unclear as to why Worden was on the tracks.
This unfortunate fatality comes just two weeks and one day after a man was struck and killed outside the Pleasant Hill station in an apparent suicide. Leads one to wonder what are BART officials doing about stopping this problem in the future.
