COWEN, Ky. (AP) - A farmer in northeastern Kentucky has died after being run over by his tractor.
    
Fleming County Sheriff Scotty Royse told The Ledger Independent (http://bit.ly/XMFTRn) that 73-year-old Ronald McCord appeared to have been ejected somehow from the tractor he was operating Monday before the vehicle ran over him on a steep hill on his farm in Cowen. He said McCord was moving bales of hay to feed cattle when the accident happened.
    
Royse said McCord's family found him after he didn't return home for lunch and didn't answer calls to his cellphone.
