DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Des Moines authorities say an infant has died at a hospital after being run over by a sport utility vehicle.

The accident happened a little after 6 p.m. Saturday in the 2500 block of East Walnut Street.

Police say it’s unclear whether the SUV was running or whether it was bumped or somehow slipped into neutral. The infant was in a car seat and had been placed in front of the SUV while he and other children were being loaded into the SUV and another vehicle.

Officers say one of the adults on the scene smelled like alcohol and had slurred speech. Liquor bottles and beer cans littered the front yard.

The accident is being investigated. No arrests have been reported.
