A Volusia County Beach Rescue captain said the woman was lying on the sand when she was run over.

Though officials said the woman wasn’t badly hurt, she did end up at the hospital.

“It’s a dangerous world down here,” said beachgoer Lisa Wright.

Wright said it’s easy for her to see how car traffic mixing with sunbathers and beachgoers could lead to a situation like this one—especially since rip currents forced people into shallower water.

“I have a couple kids, so we usually, you know, kind of let them go out to the beginning part of the wave, right where you see the tide come in,” said beachgoer Elea Rosenberg.
