11-year-old boy dies in central Missouri tractor accident
FLORENCE (AP) - An 11-year-old boy has died in a tractor accident in central Missouri.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victim as Lane J. Holem, of Florence. He was killed Saturday night after losing control of a 1954 John Deere while traveling down a steep hill in Morgan County. The patrol says the tractor then went off the side of a road, through a ditch and up an embankment.
Lane fell off the tractor, which hit him before coming to a stop in a ditch. Lane was pronounced dead at the scene.
