Train hits and kills man on Fitchburg Line tracks in Leominster

Around 11:10 a.m. by an inbound train, Transit Police reports. Mark Allen is on the train and reports:

Very somber feeling in the coach. A prayer for the victim and his family, and additionally, prayers for the crew of the train who are the first responders to these types of incidents.

This is, what, the fourth train strike since the beginning of this summer? What is going on?

I had assumed that these were suicides. I'm from the California Bay Area and these were very common along the CalTrain line that ran south from San Francisco through the south bay. There was a particular spot in Palo Alto that was especially "popular" that a friend of mine lived near for a while. Really gruesome stuff.
