September 05, 2013|By a Times staff writer

A woman lying on the grass of a San Francisco park with her baby and dog died after being run over by city truck.

The accident occurred at 2 p.m. Thursday in Holly Park, where the woman was apparently sunbathing.

She was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Her baby and dog were not hurt.

She was not immediately identified.

A resident who lives nearby said the maintenance trucks frequently drive through the grass at the park.

"Bound to happen. I'm surprised that we haven't had more dogs run over because some people let their dogs run loose,"  Patricia Leach told KGO-TV.
