MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities have identified the 4-year-old boy who died Monday after being hit by a car in Minneapolis over the weekend.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said Jose Parra Hernandez, of Minneapolis, died just before 10 p.m. Monday at the Hennepin County Medical Center. He died of multiple blunt force injuries.
