An 84-year-old Meridian man's death has been ruled accidental.
A. D. Miller's body was found Monday underneath a railroad trestle in Meridian.
County Coroner Clayton Cobler said the preliminary cause of death, pending an autopsy, was head trauma.
Cobler said authorities believe Miller abandoned his truck which became stuck on a railroad crossing on Old Highway 45.
The truck was found at Monday morning at 2:00. His body was found about 12 hours later.
Cobler says an investigation is underway but right now authorities are calling it an accidental death.
