SAN DIEGO — The city of Coronado has paid $141,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a 24-year-old woman run over by a lifeguard truck while sunbathing on the beach two years ago, records indicate.
Assistant City Manager Jim Benson said that city officials agreed to a mediated settlement with Sarah Bouvet. City records indicate the check was dated Dec. 12, 2007.
Bouvet was hospitalized for two days with injuries to her lower body after the right tires of a lifeguard’s truck ran over her as she lay on her stomach near the Hotel del Coronado.
Bouvet’s attorney, Perry C. Wander, said she “still has some minor residual physical and psychological problems.”
