The Jacksonville Beach Police Department needs to secure a good defense lawyer. On May 1, Officer Lewis Keller decided to make a u-turn on the beach in his SUV. He proceeded to run over Anne Marie Giffen, 41, who was sunbathing.
Keller and another man lifted the SUV off Giffin so that others could pull her to safety. She survived but had head and spinal injuries as well as a broken pelvis and ribs.
The mayor has called for a review of policies related to the accident. Since I doubt there is a policy of running over sunbathers for better traction, due care would seem to be a sufficient policy.
The officer has been suspended.
