A threatened midnight strike that would have shut down the Bay Area Rapid Transit system was averted late Sunday when Gov. Jerry Brown called for an investigation into the labor dispute.

Brown also announced that he has appointed a three-member board to examine the threatened strike and to report to him in seven days.
