The incident took place at Kowloon Auto Sales on the 3600 block of Monterey Highway during the early Wednesday afternoon.

According to police, a car carrier was unloading vehicles at the dealership. The driver was trying to move a truck off the trailer when the juvenile female jumped onto the trailer directly in front of the truck.

Police said the truck rolled forward and crashed with the girl and critically injured her.

I believe she wanted to comment suicide. I don’t think this was an accident. Why would someone jump in front of a moving truck?
