Semi-truck runs over sleeping woman near PB Trader Joe’s

SAN DIEGO -- Police believe a woman was sleeping beneath a semi-truck in an alley alongside a Pacific Beach Trader Joe's when she was accidentally run over and killed Sunday.

The woman was discovered around 1:20 p.m. at loading docks near the Garnet Avenue grocery store, not breathing and with injuries suggesting she had been run over, San Diego Police Department Lt. Christian Sharp said.

The woman died despite life-saving efforts by officers and paramedics. She was believed to be in her 50's.

SDPD's Traffic Division is investigating the accident, but police suspect the woman was sleeping under a truck in the loading dock when the driver started the vehicle and unknowingly ran her over. Officials are reviewing store surveillance video for more evidence, but do not believe a crime was committed.
