5-Year-Old Killed In Tractor Accident

On Monday Kennon Ray Wilkins was riding in a tractor with his grandfather as he was plowing a field. At about 10:40 a.m. the door of the tractor swung open, and Kennon fell out.

The situation is being investigated, but no charges have been filed. It does not appear as if the boy unlatched the door.

From the scene of the accident Kennon was taken to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
