A 25-year-old man from Osceola was killed this morning in a train-pedestrian accident in southwest Iowa. The accident happened at a rail crossing in downtown Osceola, about a half-block away from Main Street.
Osceola’s chief of police says Richard Holland the second was struck at about three this (Monday) morning by a train traveling on the Burlington-Northern tracks. Holland was pronounced dead at the scene. His body has been transported to the state Medical Examiner’s office where an autopsy will be performed later today.
