Legislative hearing planned on BART worker deaths
October 30, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — A state legislative committee is planning to hold a hearing in response to the deaths of two Bay Area Rapid Transit track inspectors who were struck by a train.

Assemblyman Roger Hernandez said Tuesday that he was convening the Nov. 7 hearing to “get to the bottom” of the fatal accident, which occurred when BART’s regular train operators and maintenance workers were on strike.

Hernandez, a Democrat from West Covina, chairs the Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment.

San Francisco Assemblyman Phil Ting requested the hearing.

BART officials announced last week that trains are now required to slow down or stop when they approach work zones.

Before the change, workers performing simpler tasks or walking on tracks were responsible for their own safety.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the Oct. 19 accident.
