Florida Woman Suffers Serious Injuries in Golf Cart Accident

An 89-year-old Florida woman was critically injured in a recent accident after a pickup truck hit the golf cart she was driving.

The accident occurred Monday, July 3 in Suwannee County at about 3:38 p.m., near the intersection of 232nd Street and U.S. Highway 129. The woman was reportedly attempting to cross the highway in her golf cart when she was hit by a Chevrolet pickup truck. The force of the collision caused her to be thrown from her cart. While she survived the accident, she was listed at UF Health Jacksonville as being in critical condition.

Police continued to investigate the accident and charges to the pickup driver were pending the results of the investigation.

Drivers must remain attentive

There is not enough information available to determine who was the liable party in this recent accident. But in general, all drivers must act in a reasonably safe manner while on the road to prevent serious accidents from occurring.

At intersections, for example, motorists should yield to other drivers who have the right of way. At a highway intersection, drivers preparing to enter the highway must wait until the way is clear to make a turn. In most cases, fault for an accident would lie with the driver who failed to yield — even if he or she did not initiate the collision.
