VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Loved-ones of a 5-year-old girl, seriously hurt in a golf-cart crash over the weekend, say the child should be home from the hospital tonight.
But the Sunday afternoon accident brings to light a logical, legal question. Are those golf-carts supposed to be child operated?
It was a serious enough situation that Child Protective Services has a-hand in the investigation, though the Vigo County Sheriff's Department is quick to point-out that it is standard in a scenario like this one.
Sheriff's Deputies say on Sunday the girl was in a golf cart driven by her 11-year-old sister. She fell out and was then hit by the moving golf-cart after her older sister hit a pot-hole in the road.
At last check, that 5-year-old girl was still being treated at Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis with head injuries.
