“More terrifying than I could explain” – Eye-witness on US Open cart crash

Pebble Beach Cart Crash 3

An eye-witness to the US Open cart crash that hospitalised two people and injured several more has told bunkered of the “terrifying” incident.

According to reports in the US, a vendor was using a golf cart to deliver boxes.

The vendor briefly parked and left the cart, around which time a box fell onto the accelerator of the vehicle. Eye-witnesses reported seeing it take off "at full speed", hitting the vendor as well as four others before it was brought under control.

In a statement, the USGA said: “Unfortunately, during today’s second round of the US Open there was an incident involving a golf cart on the 16th hole that resulted in three spectators and a vendor being injured and requiring medical treatment.

“We will continue to monitor their conditions.”
