SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Transit Authority says a man hit and killed by a TRAX train Tuesday was believed to be the result of suicide.

About 9:40 p.m., a man was hit by a train near 1700 South and 200 West. He was declared dead at the scene. UTA spokesman Remi Barron said Wednesday that investigators do not know the man's name or age.

No one on board the train was hurt. Barron did not know how many passengers were on the train at the time. The incident caused minimal delays to the TRAX line, he said.

Those with suicidal thoughts or those who know someone with such thoughts are encouraged to call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
