Golf Cart Crashes in The Villages, FL - January, 2013

Posted by Tim Babiarz on January 9, 2013 at 2:29pm

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

 Recent reports (ONLY THOSE THAT INVOLVED EJECTION, FALLING OUT OF THE GOLF CART, AND/OR INJU-RIES 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 about all the details.)


Monday, November 19th, 11:30 a.m.

Vehicle 1 (V-1) was north bound on Morse Blvd. V-2, a golf cart, was north bound on Morse Blvd. in the golf cart lane. V-1 was stopped at the intersection of Morse and Martinez Drive waiting for a vehicle to pull onto Morse from Martinez so that V-1 could turn right. V-2 was continuing north on Morse when V-1 attempted to make a right turn onto Martinez. V-2 applied his brakes but was unable to stop before hitting the curb causing his left leg to fall out of the interior of the golf cart. V-2 came to rest next to a light pole. The left leg of the golf cart driver was caught between the golf cart and light pole. He had a large laceration to his left calf and was transported to the Villages Hospital. The driver of V-1 was cited for an improper right turn.

Friday, November 23rd, 9 a.m.

I was on the way home this morning, about 9 AM, at the Morse/441/27 Gate, out bound, where there was an accident involving a car and a cart. They had a stretcher out and it looked like they were picking someone up from the street.

Friday, November 23rd, 6:30 p.m.

Bachman Path. Woman driving golf cart. Went to make a right turn. Did so not having noticed a trailer parked near the inter-section. She ran into the back of the trailer, fell out of the cart and struck her head on the trailer. She had a head laceration and was transported to Villages for evaluation.

Sunday, November 25th, 11:20 a.m.

A 61 year old female golf cart operator was driving a golf cart south bound on the golf cart path that runs parallel to Buena Vista Blvd. She approached the curve in the area of Buena Vista Blvd. and Old Mill Run. SHE HAD HER FOUR GRANDKIDS (ages 3, 4, 8 and 9) IN THE GOLF CART WITH HER. She advised law enforcement that she was traveling at approximately 14 MPH and that while navigating the curve her three year old grandson leaned toward the edge of the golf cart and fell out of the cart landing on the bushes next to the cart path. The child had a laceration to his lip and some abrasions on his legs. He was transported to the Villages Hospital by Rural Metro to be checked out further. (Imagine if the 3 year old had landed head first on concrete instead of a bush.)

Saturday, November 30th, 9 p.m.

Accident occurred at the intersection of Belle Meade and Argyll. Both occupants of the golf cart were ejected. One was sent to the hospital by ambulance and the other air-lifted as a trauma patient. The driver of the automobile involved stated "he came out of nowhere". Further details were not available.
