Attention Sunbathers!

Police SUV runs over, kills sunbather on beach
Tuesday, June 13, 2006

OXNARD, California (AP) -- Two police officers patrolling a beach in an SUV on Monday ran over and killed a sunbather, authorities said.

The officers had stopped on a small berm of sand to watch a swimmer who 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. The officers did not immediately realize they ran over the woman and continued driving.

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.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday. The officers have been placed on paid leave pending an investigation.
