Associated Press: A rookie police officer was suspended for seven days for running over a woman sunbathing on a north Florida beach.

An internal affairs investigation released Wednesday by the Jacksonville Beach Police Department concluded that Officer Lewis Keller was negligent and at fault for the May 1 accident.

Keller was making a U-turn in his sport utility vehicle when he rolled over 41-year-old Anne Marie Giffin of Jacksonville. Investigators said Keller and another man lifted the SUV off Giffin while other people pulled her out.

Giffin was treated for a broken pelvis and ribs, along with head and spinal injuries.

Keller told investigators he didn't see Giffin lying in the sand, but Chief Bruce Thomason concluded that Keller wasn't driving safely.

No kidding!
That’s what I’d call a “lucky break” teehee.

Mel & Kitty,

Are you kidding me? Lucky Break?
She almost died.
Anne Marie is my mom’s roommate and a friend of mine.

You should really think before you make insensitive comments for a quick laugh.

What if it was your friend or worse your daughter?

Charity, calm down what was so wrong that was said? If it was my friend or daughter I would be thankful that they were alive and would have said the same thing and advise them to get a good lawyer. With so many horrible things that happen in this world if you cant laugh at life, life isnt worth living.

Believe me ~ I AM thankful she’s alive but she was on a respirator in critical condition for a month. I’m just saying that your words seem very insensitive. I’m sure your intention wasn’t to portray yourself that way.. I’m just telling you how it sounds. I can laugh at a lot of things but not something like this and I honestly don’t think you’d be making jokes if it were someone close to you. I was caught off guard by your comment… of all the websites I’ve viewed, this was the only one that said nothing about how traumatic it must have been for Anne Marie and mentioned a joke about becoming a millionaire. hmmmm?
It was in poor taste… that’s all I’m saying.

No Charity that wasnt my intentions and I more or less read the article and commented on what I thought would be the outcome of the cops negligence. although I did think it was funny what Kitty wrote I can see why you wouldnt being so close to the situation. Good luck to your friend anyway I hope shes able to have a full recovery.
