A 25-year-old Whittier woman remains in stable condition at a local hospital after suffering bone fractures and internal lacerations when she was run over by a Los Angeles County Lifeguard truck at 4:20 p.m. Monday while lying in the sand at Venice Beach.
“The lifeguard specialist stopped his vehicle when he realized that he had struck something and rendered aid to the victim,” LAPD officer Liliana Preciado said. “He called for medical assistance and an ambulance responded and transported the victim to a local hospital.”
Preciado said Bermudez’s husband was near the scene but did not witness the accident. The driver of the truck was not detained by police, she said.
In May, a 49-year-old woman who was lying on the beach near the Via Marina Peninsula was hospitalized after being struck by an L.A. County Beaches and Harbors maintenance vehicle that was cleaning up storm debris.
