San Diego – Authorities say a lifeguard truck has run over a 4-year-old girl on the beach. It happened at about 6:00 PM Monday.
There’s no immediate word on the girl’s condition.
The San Diego City Fire Chief tells the San Diego Union-Tribune that lifeguards were patrolling in a pickup truck that maneuvered around a berm near Dog Beach.
The Fire Chief says the truck came around the back of the berm and hit a girl crouched in the sand that the lifeguards hadn’t seen.
The Chief says the truck went over the top of the girl with both tires on the driver’s side.
Lifeguards and paramedics provided aid until the girl was taken to the hospital.
Police are investigating the accident.
