Bradenton, FL (December 31, 2019) – The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed that an 80-year-old woman was seriously injured in a golf cart accident involving a vehicle.
The woman was in a golf cart and collecting her mail out of a mailbox at the time when a man driving a Volkswagen Jetta collided with the side of the golf cart at an unspecified area. The Jetta then drove off the side of the road and ran into a palm tree.
The woman was immediately taken to Blake Medical Center with serious injuries.
