Golf Cart Crash at Events Complex Under Investigation


ROCK SPRINGS – The Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a golf cart crash at the Sweetwater Events Complex on Tuesday involving nine National High School Finals Rodeo contestants.

Sheriff Rich Haskell said that around 2:00 PM, a total of nine juveniles in two rental golf carts were roughhousing with water balloons when the driver of one cart, a female, drove under the gooseneck portion of a camper trailer and collided with a horse trailer. A boy who had jumped onto her cart from another cart struck his head on the gooseneck trailer. He was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County, where he was treated and released.

Both golf carts were confiscated by the cart vendor. No citations were issued and no arrests were made. Haskell said alcohol was not a factor.
