Boy, 7, killed in tractor accident

A 7 year-old boy died Thursday after being run over by a tractor, Johnson County Sheriff Bob Alford said.

The accident occurred about 10:30 a.m. off County Road 920.

The boy, Jay Scruggs, had been riding in the bucket of a Bobcat driven by the boy’s uncle along with two other children, Alford said.

The driver inadvertently ran over the boy after he bounced out of the bucket, Alford said.

Alford, at 11:40 a.m. Thursday, said investigators from his office were on scene. Alford said investigation of the matter remains ongoing, and that no charges have been filed.
