Two police officers patrolling the beach in an SUV on Monday ran over and killed a sunbather, authorities said.

The officers did not immediately realize they ran over the woman and continued driving, police Cmdr. Tom Chronister said in a statement.

The officers, who were not immediately identified, had stopped on a small berm of sand to watch a swimmer whom they believed to be in distress. When they saw the swimmer was fine, they drove over the berm and apparently over the woman's head, authorities said.

A witness called the Oxnard Fire Department to report the woman was bleeding on the beach just south of the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort. The woman, Cindy Conolly, 49, of Sioux City, Iowa, was in town for her son's wedding, said Mike Feiler, senior deputy medical examiner in the Ventura County coroner's office.

Ouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kind of feel bad for the cops also, what was she doing on the back side of a berm? Maybe she did not know they use SUV's to patrol the beach.

That's a horrible thing for all involved!

How can you not know you ran over something like a human being? When I'm in my SUV, I can feel it when I run over a squirrel or even a coke can.

that happened to a british tourist a few years ago here in miami. i think they now use those 4 wheel motorcycles down here, to patrol the beaches.
