NORTH FLORIDA, Defuniak Springs – A 71 yr old man was driving his golf cart along New Harmony Loop approaching County Road 2A on Thursday evening around 5 pm. The golf cart suddenly swerved to the left and began overturning repeatedly.
This caused the victim to be thrown from the vehicle until the cart finally landed directly on the victim. Unfortunately, the man died after being transported to the hospital.
Golf cart accidents are not that uncommon. There are 18,000 golf cart injuries annually with approximately 15% resulting in death or disability. With the use of golf carts on streets and no use of seatbelts, the chance of serious injury is much higher than other auto-related accidents.
