    Lorae Bermudez, seen here with new husband Thomas Kim, was injured Sept. 15, 2014 when she was run over by a lifeguard truck while sunbathing on Venice Beach.

    A 26-year-old newlywed who was run over by an LA County lifeguard truck earlier this week suffered lacerations to her liver and fractures to her pelvic area, her attorney said Thursday.

    Lorae Bermudez and her husband, Thomas Kim, were sunbathing at Venice Beach Monday afternoon when she was run over by a lifeguard truck in the sand near the 1500 block of Ocean Front Walk.

    The couple were married just a few days before the incident, attorney Robert Pecora said. He said Bermudez remains hospitalized, recovering from her injuries

    A lifeguard specialist driving a Ford Escape was coming back from a rescue and did not see Bermudez in the sand, according to police. The lifeguard was not en route to an emergency, so the SUV did not have lights and sirens on at the time.

    The county is investigating, and Pecora is representing Bermudez in any possible litigation stemming from the incident.
