The individual hit and killed by a cargo train Wednesday morning has been identified by the Butte County Sheriff’s Office as 30-year-old Isaac Marquez.

Around 6 a.m. a Union Pacific train traveling north hit Marquez near the Amtrak station at 450 Orange St.

The police have theorized Marquez was trying to commit suicide by jumping in front of the train.

Marquez’s death caused the train to stop between West First and West Ninth street leaving Chico State students to climb over the locomotive.
