An investigation continues after a woman was killed in a golf cart accident near Spring Lake, Harnett County. According to a news article published by Wral.com, the woman died after being knocked off the golf cart by a security cable, designed to keep trespassers out.
The fatal accident occurred Thursday night. Authorities reported that the woman, who was riding tandem on the golf cart, was hit in the neck by a steel cable that stretched across the path. She died at the scene.
A neighbor said the steel cable had been there for more than 10 years. The case is still being investigated.
