NIOBE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a 5-year-old boy who was struck and killed by a grain truck at a farmstead in northwest North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol identified the boy Tuesday as Collin Mogren. The highway patrol says he was killed around 2 p.m. Monday in an accident on a farmstead about 6 miles northwest of Niobe in Burke County.

According to authorities, the boy was run over by the rear dual tires on the passenger side of the truck.

The highway patrol says a 39-year-old Powers Lake man had driven the truck forward about 5 feet while putting canola into a truck box.
