SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -

(AP) - The San Mateo County coroner has identified the Chinese girl who might have been struck and killed accidentally on the runway by a fire truck racing to the scene of the crashed Asiana Flight 214.
    
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/13KyOcB) Coroner Robert Foucrault said Tuesday that investigators told the parents of 16-year-old Ye Meng Yuan that she was the girl who may have been hit by the rescue vehicle.
    
Ye's parents flew into San Francisco International Airport late Monday along with the parents of the other girl killed in Saturday's crash, Ye's close friend Wang Lin Jia, also 16.
    
The police department's hit-and-run unit is investigating Ye's death.
