UPDATE: Some more information on this incident from a neighbor who lives nearby –

“Regarding the golf cart accident on the 4th of July – at least 6 people were heading to the river from the top row of houses in MVE. A short ways down the steep hill, a wheel came off the golf cart, causing it to roll, spilling the riders out and causing minor to major injures. 3 patients were flown out by medical helicopte; 2 children and 1 adult. The adult had the worse injuries and required surgery and an extended hospital stay. Children were treated and released. The last I heard the adult who was hurt is doing better. They were weekenders from Cali, and had the house next to mine.”

  1. I sure hope everyone survived. Did anyone get pictures of the ultra light that crashed into the wires near Echo Lodge on Monday morning?

  2. I heard about it but couldn’t get any more details. Anyone know anything more?
