A 66-year-old man from Hamilton was struck by a freight train and killed Tuesday afternoon. William Roy Mudd was hit by the train while leaving the Keokuk Yacht Club at 2029 River Road in Keokuk.
Police officials said they would not speculate as to why Mudd was so close to the train tracks when the freight train hit him. And so far, no witnesses have come forward to report that they saw the accident.
