A man and a woman were transported by ambulance to The Villages Regional Hospital after the golf cart they were traveling in flipped Thursday morning on a multi-modal path in The Villages.

Their golf cart had been traveling east at 8:54 a.m. on the multi-modal path along El Camino Real when the man who was driving the golf cart was slowing down, but applied the brakes heavier than intended, according to the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. That’s when the golf cart flipped over.

The Villages Public Safety Department and Rural/Metro Ambulance also responded to the scene.

  1. I wonder if they had seat belts installed on their cart. I resisted the idea for years, but last year I had the golf cart sales/service store at Lake Sumter Landing install them. Best thing I’ve ever doen with our golf cart. Hooking them up has become as automatic as when getting in your car. And without question, they provide peace of mind if something like this were to happen. Injuries as far less prevalent if the occupants are “contained” inside the frame of the cart.
