CAMERON, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a Clinton County man died when the tractor he was driving overturned and landed on him.

The patrol says 65-year-old Jesus G. Carreno of Cameron died in the accident Saturday five miles southeast of Cameron.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports (http://bit.ly/oNIRuA) that Carreno was driving the farm tractor downhill on a gravel road when he lost control. The tractor swerved and threw him off, then landed on top of Carreno.
