The King County Medical Examiner’s Office says a 49-year-old man who died after he was struck by a Link light-rail train in Seattle’s Industrial District on Thursday committed suicide.

The man, who died at Harborview Medical Center, suffered skull, rib, pelvic and femur fractures, investigators said Friday.

The man was crossing at the intersection of South Holgate Street and Fifth Avenue South, even though the gates were down and the warning lights were flashing, a Sound Transit spokesman said Thursday. He was thrown or possibly dragged 30 to 40 yards before the train could stop.

Seattle police said the light-rail operator couldn’t stop in time. The operator was tested for drug or alcohol intoxication, and tests came back negative.
