Man Receives $9.15M After Being Dragged by San Francisco Train

BART train in San Francisco California

BART officials say they have agreed to pay a $9.15 million settlement to a passenger who was injured two years ago when they were dragged by a train at Powell Street Station.

The incident happened Feb. 11, 2021, when the passenger, David Nelson, became entangled in a door and was “violently dragged,” according to a lawsuit that was filed in November 2021.

That lawsuit listed negligence, battery, and emotional distress. The lawsuit also listed liability, although a BART spokesperson said on Thursday that per the settlement, the transit agency makes no admission of liability for Nelson’s injuries.
