Helicopters assist with golf cart accident at Edisto

Three people were injured in a golf cart accident at Edisto Beach Friday night. All three were separately flown to Charleston-area hospitals. The accident occurred on Myrtle Street when a car attempted to pass a golf cart carrying two adults and a young adult. The ages are not known, as the incident report was not available as of press deadline. According to Edisto Beach Mayor Burley Lyons, the golf cart overturned, injuring all passengers on board. While there is no update on their conditions, Mayor Lyons said on Monday that he believed the injuries were not life-threatening. “I believe it was broken bones,” said Lyons. “My administrator called me the moment it happened and I went to the scene. All emergency personnel responded quickly.” Three helicopters landed in Edisto, with the town’s police and fire departments assisting. No one has yet been charged and the incident is still under investigation Lyons said, on Monday.
