There was a scary moment Friday at Pebble Beach Golf Links during the US Open where a runaway golf cart hit spectators on the 16th hole! The golf cart began driving when a box it was carrying fell from a stack and landed directly on the accelerator after a vendor had parked it by a concession stand. The only video that is circulating is a four-second clip that shows the driverless cart heading towards the spectators and making contact with someone taking the cart head-on. Five people were injured in the accident with one person breaking their arm, one had a spinal injury and the rest had a variety of minor injuries. The victims’ ages range from 25 to 82 according to the California Highway Police.
Scary moments at the @usopengolf earlier this morning! This runaway golf cart hit several people after a box fell on the accelerator. The USGA and CHP are investigating. #pebblebeach pic.twitter.com/xENOin6X1w
