One Injured in Charlevoix County Golf Cart Accident

One person was injured in a Saturday evening golf cart accident. 

Deputies say a teen from East Jordan was driving the cart with four others in Melrose Township when he made a u-turn, causing the cart to tip.

The teen lost control and the cart started to overturn. Two of riders were able to keep the cart from tipping, but one rider fell onto another causing a shoulder injury.

A girl was taken to Charlevoix Area Hospital for her injuries, and later transferred to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids.

The accident is still under investigation.
