KEYTESVILLE — A 14-year-old boy has died after the John Deere tractor he was driving overturned off a north-central Missouri bridge.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol identified the victim as Curtis D. Stallo of Salisbury.

The patrol says the tractor was pulling a flatbed trailer Sunday when it collided with the railing for a Chariton County bridge. The tractor toppled over and disconnected from the trailer.

Stallo was ejected, and the tractor landed on him. The county coroner pronounced him dead at the scene of the accident.
