SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco fire officials say there is a possibility that one of the two teenage girls killed in a plane crash at San Francisco International Airport was struck by an emergency vehicle.

Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White and Assistant Deputy Chief Dale Carnes both raised the possibility at a news conference with first responders on Monday.

San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault earlier said his office is conducting an autopsy to determine whether one of the victims was run over and killed by a responding vehicle.

He said his staff was notified of the possibility by senior San Francisco Fire Department officials at the crash site on Saturday. More than 180 people were sent to hospitals following the crash.
