Another Suicide by Metrolink?

Looks like it:
A 51-year-old Fullerton man was struck and killed by a Metrolink train in Anaheim, police said.

Police were called about 10:10 p.m. Thursday to the southbound tracks between La Palma Avenue and Sycamore Street, Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

Officers found a man on the tracks. The man, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene, Dunn said.

The passenger train was en route from Fullerton to Oceanside.

The 800 block of Sycamore was closed in both directions for several hours as police investigated the fatality.

"The investigation is continuing as to what exactly happened that caused the collision," Dunn said.
This happens way too often and the poor locomotive engineers can't do a thing about it. They just have to watch it happen.
