Greg Plitt, a fitness model and reality TV star, was killed Saturday after being struck by a Metrolink train in Burbank, California. He was 37.

Los Angeles Police have ruled out suicide in the bizarre accident.

Greg Plitt, who has appeared on more that 200 magazine covers and appeared on Days of Our Lives, was apparently filming on the tracks with another man when he was struck by the train at 4:05 p.m. on the tracks at Front Street, just north of the Burbank Metrolink Station.

Sgt. Scott Meadows of the Burbank Police Department told People that the reality stars' death "appears to be an accident."

"It does not appear to be a suicide," he said. "A camera was seized as evidence but it's unclear who it belongs to – the victim or a witness. From the sound of it, he was filming something, but I can tell you that no filming permit had been issued."

Plitt was a well-known fitness expert and also appeared on Bravo's Work Out. His latest Bravo venture, Friends to Lovers, premiered just last Monday.

"This is a terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Greg's family and friends," a Bravo spokesperson said.

Plitt worked as a U.S. Army Ranger after graduating from West Point in 2000.
