Federal investigators say a teenage girl who survived the crash of an Asiana Airlines jet in San Francisco only to be fatally struck by a fire truck actually was run over by two rescue vehicles in the accident's chaotic aftermath.
    
Authorities in California revealed months ago that 16-year-old Chinese student Ye Meng Yuan was alive on the runway and covered in firefighting foam when she was hit by an emergency vehicle and suffered the multiple blunt injuries that killed her.
    
But documents released at a National Transportation Safety Board hearing in Washington on Wednesday reveal that the motionless girl was struck twice - once by a fire rig spraying foam and again 11 minutes later by a second truck that was being turned around to fetch more water.
    
Two other teen girls from China died in the crash.
