Sunbather Ran Over by Government Vehicle at Florida Beach

After a sunbather was injured by a government vehicle, there are many people in South Florida who are concerned about the use of such large vehicles on the beach. However, lifeguards and other proponents of the vehicles state that they can make the difference between life and death on near Florida waters. The victim of a recent accident, 49-year-old R.M., was visiting Fort Lauderdale from North Carolina last week. She was laying on the beach when a city rescue pickup drove over her. Although she walked away with just a few scrapes and burns, the victim has already hired a personal injury lawyer to sue the city. She hopes to not only recover funds for her injuries, but to also encourage the Fort Lauderdale government to ban such vehicles from being permitted to drive on the beach.

In response to the accident, the mayor has stated that he will consider changing the current laws regarding vehicle usage on the beach. As for the driver of the vehicle, he has been placed on administrative leave for the time being.
