SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — The husband of a woman who was fatally run over in a San Francisco park says he’s focused on how to honor his wife and be a single dad.

Vegar Svanemyr said he’s grateful for the support he’s received from family and friends since his wife was killed last week.

Christine Svanemyr was sunbathing with her 11-month-old daughter and dog in Holly Park on Sept. 5, when the 35-year-old mother was hit by a truck driven by a city park worker.

Thomas Burnoski has been arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run. Prosecutors have not decided whether to file charges in the case.

An attorney for the 57-year-old Burnoski told the Chronicle his client was devastated when he learned Svanemyr was killed.
