Trent Tozer was a seventh-grader at South Pasadena Middle School and a Little League player. He died Sunday evening after being struck by a westbound Metro Gold Line train near the railroad crossing intersection at Arroyo Verde Road.

Using the coroner-investigator’s field notes, the medical examiner promptly ruled his death a suicide. It is assumed the boy deliberately put himself in that place with the intention of ending his life.
