MCKEE, Ky. (AP) -- An eastern Kentucky teen has died in a tractor accident.

The Jackson County Coroner's office says 18-year-old Nicholas Mathis died Tuesday after losing control of the tractor he was operating while going down a steep hill. Officials said the tractor went over a ravine, causing it to flip on top of Mathis.

The teen had just graduated from Jackson County High School.
