TRENTON, Tenn. (AP) — A 4-year-old boy has died in a fall from a farm tractor in West Tennessee.

Gibson County Sheriff Chuck Arnold says Lucas Seth Flowers was killed on Tuesday afternoon. The boy was riding in a large, dual-wheel, four-wheel-drive tractor. As the machine was being turned around, the cab door flew open and the boy was thrown out.

An obituary posted by Karnes & Son Funeral Home lists the boy's parents as Jearod and Kelly Parker Flowers.

Arnold declined to give further details, but told The Jackson Sun that strong winds that preceded damaging thunderstorms might have played a part in the door coming open.

The accident occurred at the family's farm near the China Grove community.
