A 10 year old boy was killed while taking a tractor ride with his father in Burleson County.

It happened around four Monday afternoon.
Authorities say they hit a hole and the boy was thrown from the tractor.

He was killed when the tractor shredder hit him.

Authorities have not released the boy's name, but News 3 has learned he was a student at Caldwell Intermediate School.

Counselors have been called in to help grieving students and staff.

There was an award ceremony scheduled today at the school, but it has been cancelled.
