The death of a man struck and killed by a freight train Sunday in north suburban Glenview has been ruled a suicide.
About 6:40 p.m., the three-locomotive, 137-car train carrying coal from Wyoming to an electric company in Wisconsin struck the man near Cove Lane and Dearlove Road in Glenview, according to Union Pacific railroad spokesman Mark Davis.
The man, identified as 41-year-old Chull Kwak, lived next to the tracks where he was struck, and was dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
An autopsy Monday found he died of multiple injuries and ruled his death a suicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.
Union Pacific was providing peer support for train crew, Davis said.
The Cook County sheriff’s office is investigating.
