Kansas Man Killed by Freight Train

Associated Press - October 20, 2014 2:41 pm

A central Kansas man is dead after being struck by a Union Pacific freight train over the weekend.

The McPherson County sheriff’s office told HutchPost.com the body of 36-year-old Joshua Miller was discovered around 2 a.m. Sunday by the crew of a westbound train. Authorities say Miller had been struck by an eastbound train while walking near the tracks just outside the city of McPherson.

Miller was a resident of McPherson. The sheriff’s office was still investigating the accident Monday while waiting for information from Union Pacific.
