HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) — A 2-year-old Indiana boy has died after he was struck by an SUV at a state park in western Michigan, police said.
Investigators said the Elkhart, Indiana, boy ran across a road at Holland State Park Tuesday evening and was struck by an SUV driven by a 57-year-old Ohio resident.

Witnesses, paramedics and other first responders provided the toddler with medical aid before he was taken to a hospital where he died from his injuries, police said.
Tuesday’s deadly accident remains under investigation by the sheriff’s office. The boy’s name has not been released by authorities.
