The map covers known incidents in the United States from 2018-2020 with some additional incidents prior to 2018, when available data is more limited. Any omissions or errors in the map are unintentional and will be corrected as additional information is developed.
The map is a “work in progress” and Mr. Leiss invites interested parties to notify him of additional struck by/vehicle assault deaths so he can update the map. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name, department, photo (if possible), date of the LODD, and link to a news article on the incident (if available).
Deaths in the State of Alabama
Gene Lee Schofield, Jr. – March 23, 2016
John “Bubba” William Hubbard II – Dec. 10,2016
Corey “Mad Dog” Lynn Arnold – June 29, 2017
Authorities from the Creola Police Dept. and the Alabama State Troopers were called out to the scene of the accident off US-43 at around 3PM. Alabama State Trooper Kevin Cook says Arnold had stopped on the tracks to disconnect from a vehicle that he had just pulled out of a ditch. As a train was approaching the truck, Arnold was reportedly attempting to remove the truck from the tracks. He was unable to do so in time, and the train struck the vehicle. As a result of the collision, Arnold was fatally injured and died at the scene.
