It was a very unfortunate accident as the Golf cart got stuck in reverse-the brakes failed,and the cart went shooting backwards(fron Ramons parking lot)and straight into the old lady-she ended up underneath the cart-the British Army sent an evacuation helicopter but she was to badly injured,and died in the Karl Heusner hospital

One more thing perhaps we should not allow people to operate stands/booths on public roads as unfortunate as the accident is-it would not have happened if the fruit stand was not there.

This is so sad. Our prayers are with the family. How unfortunate for her, as well as the person driving the cart. You just don't think that a golf cart can cause such mortal injuries. I feel so badly for all involved.

I am stunned and don't even know what to say.... How very very sad and tragic. It seems that even on a tiny island you can't hide from fate. That street corner won't ever be the same for me. May she rest in peace. My deepest sympathy to her family. mo

Mobunny..I totally agree with you. I was so stunned I didn't know what to say either.
The poor darling woman.
Being run down is something I can tell you I have had happen but the machine quit before it went too far, thank God.

This poor lady. Bless her family and friends. No, it won't be the same!! frown

I just saw what happened frown How sad it was hard to me to pass her without getting something and she was always so nice.

I not sure about banning stands will fix the problem and was very concerned the local people walking along the streets, especially the school childern. Perhaps sidewalks? I don't have the answers just expressing my concern.

It seems the me that the right away in San Pedro is based on whoever is biggest. Trucks, cars, carts, etc.

This is so SAD!God bless us all, people need to be aware at all times, even on an island!The whole group of us last August almost got HIT by a taxi on Middle St.. Eight people had to jump out of they way.Some of the people follow the fastest of Taxi's on their carts, maybe they should slow it down.It used too be so much fun when the Taxi's and Carts weren't so much in a hurry.When they were'nt there at all was better.. the old days, car and a couple of trucks in 1984..
