PORTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Two teenagers were injured when their golf cart was hit by a truck in Cass County on Saturday.

According to Cass County Sheriff Joseph Underwood Jr., at 6:25 p.m. Saturday, Cass County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a personal injury traffic crash involving a golf cart and pickup truck in Cass County’s Porter Township. The crash occurred at the intersection of Wayne Street and Hilltop Drive.

The investigation showed that a golf cart driven by a 14-year-old girl drove from Hilltop Drive onto Wayne Street and failed to yield the right of way to a pickup truck being driven by Max Brown, 75, of Union. The 14-year-old driver and a 14-year-old passenger both were injured in the crash.

The two teens were transported to Elkhart (Ind.) General Hospital by SEPSA ambulance.

Brown and a passenger, Samantha Brown, were not injured. Both were wearing seat belts at the time of the collision.

The Porter Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Police said alcohol was not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation by the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

    Golf carts do not belong on the road. Anything travelling in a public roadway, including bicycles, should be licensed and be covered by liability insurance.

      I absolutely agree with you! And they should be subject to all the same laws that motor vehicle drivers have to follow and receive a ticket when they fail to do so.
