In Minnesota and other states, people enjoy the outdoors of summer and camp with their families. It is a time for relaxation and a time to enjoy nature. Unfortunately, campgrounds are the sites of personal injuries and deaths for some campers. In Beaver Falls, Minnesota, a mother was injured and an infant was killed when a van accidentally ran over a tent occupied by the mother and infant. The 4 month old child was later identified as Wyatt Sander of Redwood Falls, Minnesota. The mother and infant were dragged for a distance as a result of the impact. The driver was later arrested for charges of vehicular homicide, driving while intoxicated, and driving with a suspended license. It is a tragedy for the Sander family and one that could have been avoided had the driver refrained from driving.
