LOUISIANA, Mo. — The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the death of a BNSF employee in northeast Missouri.

Buddy Strieker, 56, of Hannibal, died Wednesday at the railroad's customer facility in Louisiana, Missouri. The railroad said Strieker was a conductor who worked for the BNSF for more than 24 years.

Spokeswoman Amy Casas said the company could not provide details of his death because it is under investigation.

"We extend our condolences to the Strieker family, and we will continue to keep them, his loved ones and his co-workers in our thoughts and prayers," Casas said in a statement.
