Woman Dies after Being Thrown from Golf Cart; Husband Charged with Manslaughter

Another cautionary tale about golf course safety. Or in this case, golf cart safety.

A husband and wife were driving along neighborhood streets in their golf cart, returning home after a round of golf at a Sugar Land country club. The husband, driving, made a sharp turn and his wife was thrown from the cart. She hit her head on the pavement and later died as a result of the injury. When police arrived, they gave the husband a sobriety test and he failed.

The man is being charged with intoxication manslaughter. The story is here.

Let's be careful out there. Don't drink and drive, even if it's only a golf cart you're driving.
