Toddler Dies in Ralls County

Authorities say a Ralls county toddler died after being backed over by a family member. 2-year old Ely Joiner was airlifted from the scene on Taft Trail outside Perry Saturday evening, and was pronounced dead at University Medical Center in Columbia. Missouri State Highway patrol reports indicate a family member was backing a 2009 Silverado pickup and apparently did not see Ely behind him.
