NOXUBEE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- A child has died after being run over in an apparent accident Monday afternoon, according to authorities.

Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant says Kirby Theodore Decker, 9, was standing on a trailer at the family farm while someone else was moving it a short distance.

Merchant says it appeared something came dislodged and Decker fell. The driver of the truck then accidentally ran over the child.

Family members took Decker to Brooksville where an ambulance transported him to Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle in Columbus.

Decker was pronounced dead shortly after 4 p.m.

Merchant says the death has been ruled accidental.
