MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - New rules for trucks on the beach are being proposed for a South Carolina resort town after a man napping in the sand was run over by a lifeguard truck last month.
Multiple media outlets reported Myrtle Beach's beach advisory committee is proposing new rules for beach service trucks.
The rules would have to be approved by city council. The rules would require that beach service workers check the area around their trucks before driving on the beach. Drivers also could not use cell phones while driving and would have to have their emergency flashers operating.
A 34-year-old man was run over by a lifeguard truck May 14. He remains in serious condition at a Myrtle Beach hospital.
