TRENTON, OH (FOX19) - The death of a Butler County father and son has been ruled a suicide.

Back in February, Robert Brown and his 4-year-old son were hit and killed by a train in Trenton.

On Wednesday, the Butler County coroner ruled Robert's death a suicide.

The coroner says Brown had alcohol and prescription drugs in his system at the time of the incident.

They went on to say he went around a railroad crossing to walk into the path of the train, carrying his young son in a stroller.

Brown died at the scene and his son died after being flown to the hospital.
