Fire chief: Plane Crash Victim Possibly Run Over

By  | 

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco fire officials acknowledge that one of their trucks rushing to the Asiana Airlines crash at San Francisco airport may have run over one of the two teenage girls killed in the accident.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White said during a news conference that they are "looking closely at this."

San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault said the body of the girl who might have been struck was found not far from an emergency slide about 30 feet away from where the Boeing 777 came to rest after it skidded down the tarmac.

The other body was found on the runway near where the plane's tail broke off upon impact.

Foucrault said the teenagers' families are expected to arrive from China on Monday, and they will receive the autopsy results before they are made public.
