MYRTLE BEACH, S.C., Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Authorities in Myrtle Beach, S.C., are warning beach-goers to stay away from some sandy areas after a sunbathing tourist was run over by a lifeguard's truck.

Myrtle Beach police spokesman David Knipes said Kelly Brauner, 25, of Tennessee was taken to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center with minor injuries after she was run over Tuesday by a Lack's Beach Service vehicle, the Myrtle Beach Sun News was reported Thursday.

Knipes said no charges are expected to be filed as a result of the incident.

Myrtle Beach City spokesman Mark Kruea said beach-goers should steer clear of some areas for their own safety.

"The lifeguard service vehicles do move up and down the beach as they work, so when you pick a spot do be conscious that there are some areas where the vehicles are traveling. There are pretty visible tracks," he said.
