ST. PETE BEACH, FL - A Florida sheriff accidentally ran over and injured a woman who was sunbathing on the beach.

A Pinellas County Sheriff's Office deputy accidentally ran over the beachgoer who was lying on the sand as he was driving to check on a 911 hangup call.

The PCSO says the call came as Deputy Todd Brien was on patrol at St. Pete Beach on Wednesday.

Deputy Brien got into his Chevrolet Tahoe sheriff's vehicle and ran over a 23-year-old woman who was lying on her back, driving over her right side and mid to upper back area.

The woman was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The sheriff's office continues to investigate Wednesday's accident.
