2 Young Children Thrown From Golf Cart After Driver Seems To Intentionally Slam Into Them
MINT HILL, N.C. – Video from Mint Hill shows a driver seem to intentionally back up into a golf cart, hard, and then speed off. A 9-year-old girl, a 16-month-old toddler and their dad were in that golf cart. The kids were thrown from the vehicle and were hurt. They’re all OK but still very shaken up.
Family spokesperson Melissa Nau says, “They (the driver) just purposely put the car in reverse and smashed into them and ejected the two children,” and, “Somebody saw the video that was posted, and they made contact with the family, and they, I guess, turned them in.”
The neighbor who captured the disturbing video went outside with their phone, we are told, because the white SUV had been speeding around the neighborhood for a while January 10th.
Jail records show the teen driver was booked and charged with felony hit and run. WCCB has contacted his parents for comment but not heard back. We are also waiting to hear back from the Mint Hill Police.
