And now, more horrible news in the aftermath of the Asiana Airlines Flight 124 disaster: authorities in San Francisco say that a fire truck did, in fact, strike one of the two teenage girls who died in the crash.


Earlier this week authorities were working to determine whether one of the 16-year-old girls killed in the crash was hit by a fire truck after being ejected from the plane when it slammed into the runway. Now, San Francisco police officials tell ABC 7 San Francisco that the girl was indeed hit by the truck.

What they do not know yet is whether or not getting hit by the truck caused or contributed to the girl's death, the TV station reported. Her exact cause of death has not been determined by the coroner.


The AP reports that the girl was on the ground and was covered in foam from the firefighting efforts. Truly awful all around.
