This sounds like someone trying to beat the train they were trying to catch. The train beat them.

So sad, but don't try and beat a train. Missing a train is not the end of the world.

Not a lot of information here. Suicide or was someone really trying to beat the train?

Sadly, Fair, I'm guessing this may be the Mountain View High School suicide referenced in another article. The Mercury News reports the Caltrain victim succumbed to their injuries.
