WOOD COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - A two-year-old child is dead after falling beneath a relative's tractor.

Wood County officials say Cameron Allen Pruett was transported to Winnsboro Presbyterian Hospital Sunday night where he died a short time later. The child was riding on the tractor with an adult driver when the tractor hit a rough bump and the driver lost his grip on the child. The driver was unable to stop the tractor in time before the child went under.

The incident took place near a residence at FM 312 in Wood County.
