— Johnson County authorities say the body of a man who was struck and killed by a train near Clarksville has been sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab in an effort to identify him.

The man was thrown about 30 feet into the water. His body was found in about 13 feet of water by the sheriff's office dive team.
