Villager dies after suffering seizure and falling from his golf cart

Ronald Watson

A Villager died after suffering a seizure and falling from his golf cart.

Ronald Lee Watson, 68, had been at the wheel of a 2017 Club Car golf cart at 6:18 p.m. Sunday not far from his home on Baldwin Run in the Village of St. Charles when he suffered an apparent seizure, according to an accident report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

Watson suffered the seizure, his “cart braked hard” and he fell out, the report said. The golf cart rolled for another 10 feet before it came to a stop. EMS personnel arrived on the scene and attempted to revive Watson, but were not successful.

Watson’s wife told law enforcement officers that her husband had suffered a seizure the previous week and that he had a history of seizures.

A memorial service is set for Thursday for Watson.
