“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.

John Hanning, from Hendersonville in Tennessee, saw the accident occur and, in a tweet to the bunkered Twitter account, described what happened.

• Spieth branded a "douche" for caddie criticism

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.”
