Train death ruled a suicide

By From page A2 | January 30, 2013

The man who was struck and killed by a train Monday morning in Davis has been identified by Yolo County coroner’s officials as 20-year-old Steven Garrett Hatton.

Hatton, a Davis resident, died shortly before 4:30 a.m. following the collision on the Union Pacific Railroad tracks near Second Street and Peña Drive.

Union Pacific officials, who are investigating the incident, say Hatton was sitting on the westbound tracks when he was hit by a Milpitas-bound freight train. Chief Deputy Coroner Robert LaBrash said Hatton’s death, of multiple blunt-force injuries, has been ruled a suicide.

Hatton attended UC Davis at one point but had not been enrolled since last fall, LaBrash said.
