(OXFORD, OH) --
Update: 8:30 a.m. Monday, Oct. 22
The Butler County coroner says the 20-year-old Miami University student hit and killed by a train may have been committing suicide.
The train conductor says he saw someone standing near the tracks as the train approached. The coroner says Eger could have dived under the train to take his own life.
Eger is the second Miami of Ohio student to die from being hit by a train in less than a year.
In April, 19-year-old Beth Speidel was struck and killed by a freight train.
Authorities said she was intoxicated, and five of her friends were charged with helping get her drunk.
Eger was a junior at Miami and a 2005 graduate of Princeton High School. Representatives from Princeton said he played trumpet in the jazz band, took AP classes and played various sports.
