CEDAR HILL, Mo. (AP) — A 70-year-old eastern Missouri woman has died after being ejected from a tractor during an accident.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Barbara Elmer of Cedar Hill was about to turn the tractor into a private driveway Tuesday evening when an International Harvester 4400 truck behind her, driven by 25-year-old Eric Young of Fenton, struck the rear of the tractor, causing it to overturn.

Elmer was pronounced dead at the scene.
