Teen killed in Asiana crash was hit by fire truck, San Francisco cops say

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- San Francisco Police say one of the Chinese teenagers who was killed in the Asiana Airlines crash was struck by a fire truck, although it's not clear whether that killed her.

Coroner's officials are still trying to determine the girl's cause of death. But police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy confirmed Friday that she was hit by the truck.

He says the girl was on the ground and covered in foam that had been sprayed by fire crews.

Asiana Flight 214 collided with a rocky seawall just short of its intended airport runway on Saturday. Two people were killed and dozens of others injured although most suffered minor injuries.

Investigators have said the plane came in too low and slow.
