U-Dub Women's Golfer Hospitalized In Cart Accident
By Kickntrue on 3/30/10
University of Washington golfer Karinn Dickinson was hospitalized after being pinned between a couple golf carts over the weekend at the Longhorn Invitational, a 16-team collegiate event in Austin, Texas.
Dickinson was standing next to a cart when a volunteer accidentally hit her, trapping her between the two carts. She was treated by Texas staff members before EMTs arrived and took her to the emergency room.Fortunately, this didn't turn out as ugly as it could have, but if I'm Dickinson, her parents, and to a lesser deal, the her coach, I'm pretty peeved about this. I recognize the fact that anytime you get in any vehicle you are taking a chance and accidents do happen, but I haven't met a golf cart accident yet that wasn't avoidable. I hope this volunteer is barred from future cart duties. They should still volunteer... but someone has to be in charge of trash, too.

True that. I don't know how anyone could be in an accident with a golf cart. They don't go that fast and barring just being stupid, drunk, or a malfunction with the cart - there's no way there should be an accident if you're responsibly operating the vehicle.
