Van hits tent near Redwood Falls, killing infant

A 4-month-old infant boy has died after he and his mother were run over by a van in southern Minnesota.

The Renville County Sheriff's office says they received a call about 8:40 a.m. Sunday from Beaver Falls, a county park located a few miles northeast of Redwood Falls.

Authorities say the infant was resting in a tent with his father and mother at the Beaver Falls Campground when a woman backed her van over and through the tent. The mother and baby were dragged under the vehicle.

The child was taken to Redwood Falls Area Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The mother was in stable condition. Their names haven't been released.

Authorities say they've arrested the woman who was driving the van. She's in the Renville County jail pending formal charges.
