A runaway golf cart slammed into the crowd at Pebble Beach during the second round of the 2019 US Open.
According to the California Highway Patrol, a vendor had loaded a cart with boxes to make deliveries. At Pebble Beach’s 16th hole, the worker parked the car and walked away. About 10:20am, local time, a box on the front seat fell on the accelerator, sending the cart into the gallery.
The cart hit five people, including the vendor, who was ultimately able to stop the vehicle.
Wildest thing I've seen so far at the #usopen just happened. Box fell on the gas peddle of an unattended cart and it ran at full speed in large circles on the 16th fairway, Hit at least two people before someone jumped on(ish) and knocked the box off. Could have been really bad.
