A teen was killed in a tractor accident in Jackson County Tuesday evening.

The county coroner said Nicholas Mathis, 18, lost control of his tractor while going down a steep hill on Wolf Pen Branch Road (off of Highway 3630), and went over a ravine around 6 p.m.

He said that caused the tractor to flip on top of the teen.
