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 ( 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.

Royse said McCord's family found him after he didn't return home for lunch and didn't answer calls to his cellphone.
