BART commuters are stranded this morning after a major shutdown of West Oakland station, which has blocked all trains going through the Transbay Tube in either direction.

According to BART, the issue, which began around 8:20am, has been caused by a car crashing into an electrical pole, downing a power line onto the tracks.

BART officials said that AC Transit will honor BART tickets for passengers.

Update, 10:23am: The power line has been removed, and service is moving through West Oakland station again, albeit with delays.Ā
