Renville County sheriff's officials identified the victim Monday as 4-month-old Wyatt Sander of Redwood Falls.

He and his parents were resting in the tent when a woman driving a van went over it while trying to back into a parking area nearby Sunday morning at the Beaver Falls Campground near Morton. His mother Sheena Hinshaw was reported in stable condition at Redwood Falls Area Hospital. His father Jacob Sander was uninjured.

The driver dragged the infant and mother under the vehicle. The baby was pronounced dead at Redwood Falls Area Hospital.
