An American female police officer accidentally ran over a man who was resting in Florida during a coronavirus pandemic, the New York Post reported. The incident occurred on one of the beaches in Indian Shore.

The man was immediately taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. The police officer was not injured in the incident. The authorities continue to investigate the details of the incident.
According to the Daily Mail, some Florida beaches began gradually opening up to the public in mid-April, despite the active spread of the coronavirus throughout the country.
