A 2-year-old boy who died Thursday evening when he was struck by a vehicle in a mobile home park in Corcoran has been identified.

The Associated Press reports that according to the Hennepin County medical examiner's office, Henry Alexander Lucas Gonzalez died of blunt force trauma at Maple Grove Hospital.

A press release from the Hennepin County Sheriff's office Thursday said the boy was hit about 6 p.m. in the 7800 block of Maple Hill Road, in Maple Hill Estates. The release says the family took the child to Maple Grove Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

KARE 11 reported that the boy's aunt was driving the car that killed her nephew.

Fox 9 said investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor.

KSTP-TV reported there was a language barrier because the family speaks Spanish.

At the crime scene, there was a blue bucket left where the boy had been.

Corcoran is about 15 miles northwest of Minneapolis.
