GALLATIN, Mo. (AP) - A 4-year-old northwest Missouri boy died after he rode his tricycle into the path of a pickup Friday in Daviess County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Tyler Bird died Friday on private property a mile north of Gallatin.

The patrol said he rode his tricycle into the path of a pickup truck driven by 34-year-old Cody Bird. The boy died later at a hospital.
