AUTHORITIES SAID TUESDAY THAT a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) passenger was killed after she was dragged by a departing train at the Powell Street Station.
The San Francisco Medical Examiner identified the woman as 41-year-old Amy Adams of San Francisco.
Adams had a dog leash tied around her waist and had boarded a train bound for Dublin/Pleasanton in San Francisco around 3:15 p.m., but she disembarked right as the doors were closing, leaving the dog inside the train.
