A man who was fatally struck by a Metra train Monday evening in west suburban Lisle has been identified. 

Inbound train No. 1272 struck a pedestrian just east of the Lisle station just after 4 p.m., Metra spokeswoman Meg Reile said.

The man was identified as 41-year-old Jeremy Marriott of Naperville, according to the DuPage County coroner’s office. He was dead at the scene.

Preliminary information indicates the incident was not an accident, “but instead an unfortunate incident of self-harm,” police said.

Riders on the BNSF saw one canceled train and delays of at least 50 minutes Monday evening, but normal service resumed by 7:30 p.m., Metra said.
