HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Nov. 19 (UPI) -- An 8-year-old California girl filed a claim against her city alleging she was hit by a lifeguard truck while lying on the beach.

A claim filed on behalf of Miranda Sosa, 8, of Huntington Beach, alleges she was struck by the front left tire of a lifeguard truck while she was lying on the sand at 3:50 p.m. June 13, the Huntington Beach Independent reported Friday.

The claim, a precursor to a lawsuit, states the girl suffered scratches and bruising to her face, pain in her neck and left arm, headaches and loss of vision in her left eye.

The girl is seeking an unspecified amount exceeding $10,000.
