Bay Area transit officials are investigating a report that a BART commuter train struck two employees working along a section of track.
The report said that the incident occurred between Walnut Creek and Pleasant Hill stations, according to BART's website.
"We are working to gather more information and will update the public later this afternoon," according to the statement.
Transit workers went on strike Friday after negotiations broke down over salaries and benefits. BART, the nation's fifth largest transit system, carries about 400,000 round-trip passengers each workday.
