LOS ANGELES (AP) - A woman who was run over by a lifeguard’s SUV as she sunbathed on a beach has settled her lawsuit against Los Angeles County.

Newlywed Lorae Bermudez of Whittier and her husband were at Venice Beach in September of 2014 when she was run down as she lay on the sand. Court papers say her liver was lacerated.

Her attorney tells City News Service Tuesday that Bermudez and her husband have reached a tentative settlement of their negligence lawsuit.

Details weren’t disclosed but their attorney, Robert Glassman, says the deal needs approval from the county Board of Supervisors.

The board must sign off on all settlements above $100,000.
