(HAMILTON, Mo.)  An 8-year-old boy was ran over by a truck after falling off the tailgate Sunday evening.

The accident happened around 5:45 p.m. on private property of Route CC about five miles north of Hamilton.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol, an adult was working under the hood of an Ford F150 trying to get the vehicle to start. The truck was left in gear. The truck began to roll, and that's when Alex Rich fell off the tailgate. The rear right tire then ran over Rich.

Rich was taken by Life Flight Eagle to Children's Mercy in Kansas City with moderate injuries.

The forecast for tomorrow will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
