    Officer drives over a sunbather

    Daytona Beach sunbather 'alert' after being run over
    Officer faces ticket for careless driving, $115 fine

    Associated Press

    DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. - A beach patrol officer who drove over a sunbather will be ticketed for careless driving and fined $115, officials said.

    Officer Robert Augustynowski, 43, drove his pickup diagonally across Danielle Taylor as she sunbathed Monday near the Main Street Pier. The Volusia County officer was driving at about 2 1/2 mph, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

    Taylor, 20, of Fort Stewart, Ga., was taken to Halifax Medical Center. Hospital officials would not give details Tuesday, but Beach Patrol Capt. Scott Petersohn said Taylor was "awake and alert and talking."

    "Two of the tires rolled over her shoulder and her hip," patrol spokeswoman Kim Miller said.

    Last August, a beach patrol officer drove over a 25-year-old woman sunbathing on a lounge chair, causing cuts and bruises.

    In February 2003, a Miami Beach police officer searching for two robbery suspects drove over two sunbathing sisters, killing one and critically injuring the other.

    Sounds like the protective services of florida are more dangerous than the new CCW laws

    You know that driving down Daytona Beach has got to be one of the most distracting places to drive a vehicle.

    Could have been a speed bump?
