The family of a South Carolina man severely injured when a beach-service truck ran over him as he sunbathed has sued the company and the city of Myrtle Beach.
The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports Thursday that the brother of 34-year-old Erik Rabon has sued over the May 14 accident that crushed vertebrae in Rabon's neck. He remains in a local hospital, unable to walk or breathe on his own, with spinal-cord and brain injuries.
Police reports say Rabon was likely asleep on the sand when a Huggins Beach Service truck ran over Rabon. He was then dragged by the head through the sand.
Huggins and city officials have declined to comment. The company provides lifeguard and emergency services for the city. It has since changed some of its policies for drivers.
