Body of Missouri man found near Oregon railroad tracks

BEND, OREGON -

(AP - Oregon) Authorities investigating a car accident in Central Oregon discovered the body of a 24-year-old man near the scene.

Bend police say a driver suffered a medical problem before leaving the highway and crashing onto railroad tracks Wednesday night.

No one was hurt in the crash, but the body of Robert McKinney was found in a spot hidden from the highway.

Oregon court records show McKinney was arrested in November for stealing car keys and entering a motor vehicle. He failed to appear at his arraignment and a warrant was issued for his arrest in mid-December.

Police do not believe his death stemmed from the car accident or foul play.

It's unknown if McKinney had shelter in Oregon. He listed a Joplin, Missouri, address in court papers following his arrest.
