Out-of-control golf cart sends spectators to hospital at U.S. Open

Out-of-control golf cart sends spectators to hospital at U.S. Open An out-of-control golf cart drove into spectators at the U.S. Open on Friday, sending several fans standing near the 16th hole to the hospital, according to Joe Szydlowski of The Californian. The cart was delivering boxes to a concession stand on No. 16. As the driver exited the cart, one of the boxes fell onto the accelerator, causing the cart to pick up speed and head toward the gallery, eyewitnesses recalled. “We were standing in the concession line on the 16th hole when all of a sudden there was a runaway cart and one guy running after it, then a bunch of people running after it,” Georgie Salant told Dylan Dethier.

A train plunged into a canal when the bridge it was travelling across gave way, killing four people and injuring 100 more in Bangladesh on Monday.

Officials said part of the bridge collapsed as the express train went over, sending five cars crashing to the ground, with one of them landing in the water.

Scores of people were trapped in the accident at Kalaura, 300 kilometres (185 miles) from Dhaka.

Regional government administrator Tofael Islam said part of the bridge gave way as the train was crossing.

Twenty-one of the injured were taken to a hospital in Sylhet, the nearest city, in serious condition.

Train services from Dhaka to the northeast were stopped because of the accident.

Train accidents are common in Bangladesh because of poor signalling and rundown tracks.
