Golf Cart vs. Bicycle Accident

On Friday, March 13, Landings Security responded to the intersection of Landings Way North and Bartram Road South for a report of a golf cart versus bicycle accident. Upon arrival, the officer spoke with a teenage boy and his parents about the incident. The boy stated that he and several friends were stationary on their bicycles while at the stop sign on the cart path facing Bartram Road. A golf cart traveling from Bartram Road crossed the roadway and struck his bicycle when it passed. The driver continued down the path without stopping, but eventually he returned to the scene. The parents advised that they already had spoken with the driver who stated that he felt a small bump when he passed the group of boys but did not realize he had hit anything. Upon giving it more thought, he decided to return to the scene and make sure. Both parties agreed to work out any damages among themselves and did not require CCPD.
