Horry County golf cart driver flown to hospital after early morning crash

One person was flown by helicopter to a North Carolina hospital following an early morning crash that involved a golf cart hitting a vehicle, according to the S.C. Highway Patrol.

Troopers are investigating the crash that occurred about 2 a.m. Monday on S.C. 90 when a golf cart crossed the center line and struck the vehicle, Lance Cpl. Sonny Collins said. The cart did not hit the car head-on, but on the side.

The driver of the golf cart was hurt and flown to New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Collins said. The person’s condition was not immediately available.

State law prohibits a golf cart to driven on a state or U.S. road such as U.S. 501, 17 or S.C. 90, Collins said. Golf carts can cross such roads, but are only allowed on secondary roads.

Golf carts can only be driven within two miles of your home or business and operated during daylight hours, Collins said.
