Greg Plitt was trying to outrun the train that struck him dead over the weekend, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, the fitness trainer and actor was shooting a commercial for a sports drink near the rail tracks in Burbank when he decided that it would be cool to outrun an oncoming train. But tragedy struck when he stumbled and fell on the rail tracks … and couldn’t recover quickly enough to get out of the train’s way.
TMZ quotes sources as saying that Plitt had worked out on the tracks several times before. A coroner ruled the cause of death as multiple force blunt trauma.
He was 37.
