Reprinted with permission from the Property Owners Association of The Villages monthly Bulletin:

These are recent reports (ONLY THOSE THAT INVOLVED EJECTION, FALLING OUT OF THE GOLF CART, AND/OR INJURIES are provided) that we have received from Village residents, Public Safety, and area law enforcement. (Note: we cannot guarantee that the information we receive is completely accurate.)

May 24th – 5:30 PM – Single golf cart in the tunnel at Buena Vista and Bailey Trail. Cart driver cut the corner too sharply and the cart tipped over onto her leg. The cart was lifted off of her by bystanders. No major injuries, but she was transported for evaluation.

June 1st – Vehicle #2 (V2), a golf cart traveling westbound in the golf cart lane on Rio Grande Avenue, was approaching the intersection of Lisbon Lane. Vehicle #1 (V1), also a golf cart was stopped at the stop sign facing southbound on Lisbon Lane at the intersection of Rio Grande. V1 failed to yield the right-of-way to V2 which caused the left front of V1 to strike the right rear tire of V2. V2 then flipped over onto its side coming to rest in the middle of the intersection. The driver of V1 stated that the blinker to turn right (north) onto Lisbon Lane was activated and she thought he was going to turn so she pulled out into traffic. The driver of V2 was removed from the cart and transported to the Villages Hospital. The driver of V1 was cited for failing to yield the right-of-way.

June 11th – 5:15 PM – Single golf cart crash on the cart path that runs alongside Buena Vista Boulevard, just beyond the Ambassador Shack on the Riley golf cart path, between the "Shack“ and the cart path. This is where you would turn right to go down to the Palmer driving range. Driver on the rec trail was headed home. He passed out while driving and drove off the path into the bushes and a fence. Driver stated that he had been playing golf all day but said that he had been drinking water. No major injuries. He was sitting up in the cart when Public Safety arrived. He was transported to the hospital for evaluation and the golf cart was towed away.
