EUDORA, Mo. (AP) _ A southwest Missouri boy is dead after he slipped and fell while trying to jump onto a flatbed trailer that was being pulled by a truck.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the trailer ran over 7-year-old Darren Mead of Aurora.

The boy was flown to a Springfield hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The accident happened Friday afternoon on a Polk County farm west of Eudora as the truck was hauling a car. The boy was a first-grader at an Aurora elementary school, which was not in session Friday because of snow-covered roads in the district.

A patrol trooper says the boy was with an aunt while his parents
were in Springfield.
