SF official: Unknown which fire truck killed girl

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco Fire Department spokeswoman says the agency is still investigating which rig ran over and killed a 16-year-old Asiana Airlines crash survivor.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a two-axle truck believed to have run over Ye Meng Yuan as it moved to get a better position to spray foam on fire was not equipped with infrared imaging technology now required by federal law.

However, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said officials are still probing which vehicle was responsible for the girl's death after Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crashed July 6.

She said infrared equipment wouldn't have had any bearing on the situation and that their investigation is not yet complete.

Two other Chinese girls also died, one who was thrown out the back of the plane and a second who died days later from her injuries.
