Girl, 16, life-flighted after PTC cart crash

REVISED FOR PRINT Nov. 2 — A woman lost control of a golf cart carrying four children and a teenager off Kedron Drive in north Peachtree City Friday night and careened into a tree. The single cart wreck resulted in the teenager being life-flighted to Atlanta Medical Center. The other four passengers, ranging in age from 1 to 7, and the 24-year-old driver were treated and released at Piedmont Fayette Hospital.

Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove wreck occurred on Oct. 29 at approximately 8:07 p.m. in the area of the multi-use path at the intersection of Kedron Drive and the aquatic center.

Dove said the vehicle’s driver, 24-year-old Peachtree City resident Angelica Maro-Soto, apparently lost control of the vehicle. The 1984 Club Car cart ran off the path approximately 33 feet and sideswiped a tree.

Dove said a 16-year-old female passenger in the front seat was thrown through the front windshield and struck her head. The girl was life-flighted to Atlanta Medical Center and her current condition is unknown.

The driver and the other four young passengers, ages 1,2,6 and 7, were all taken to Piedmont Fayette Hospital for evaluation and later released, Dove said. The names of the underaged passengers were not released.

Dove said further investigation indicated that the brakes on the golf cart were not in working order to some undetermined degree during the time of the accident.

Maro-Soto was issued a citation for failure to have the vehicle under control.
