WVTM 13 News reported on a tragic Alabama accident last week in which a man was killed after being trapped underneath a neighbor’s golf cart.
The incident took place last Wednesday on the 7600 block of Self Lane in Morris when the victim, identified by the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office as a 52-year-old man from Morris, was working in his front lawn. A neighbor stopped to visit with him for a few minutes and at some point accidentally shifted the cart into reverse. When he departed, he accidentally backed over the victim, trapping the victim underneath.
The victim was transported to a local hospital, but he sadly succumbed to his injuries. Jefferson County Sheriffs Office investigators are currently looking into the incident.
