The death of a man struck by a Metrolink train Tuesday morning has been ruled a suicide by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

The coroner said Sherwin Harry Isaacson, 76, deliberately walked in front of the commuter train as it passed through Northridge about 7:15 a.m. Isaacson, who died at the scene, lived in West Hills, the coroner's office said Wednesday.

No one on the train, No. 104 to Los Angeles, was injured. The tracks were closed temporarily.
