Default Colliision Info

There is an article in today's Sun (p. 5A) stating cart collided with Jeep Wrangler at Buena Vista, just south of 466A.
At traffic circle, the cart entered the southbound lane, traveling in the wrong direction and collided with Jeep
ejecting the golf cart occupants.
Male and female occupants, in late 60's or early 70's, are in critical condition, one in Leesburg and one in Orlando.
Driver of Jeep was uninjured.
So sad and hoping all will end well for the injured.

Default Very sad news...

One has to wonder how the heck a golf cart got south of 466A on BV? Maybe it was an LSV or they were VERY lost? Not important to the folks or their families, but makes me wonder.....

Bill and AJ,

We see carts down there quite frequently. I think folks are exploring the "new" section and think that it is OK for them to be on the road.....

Having seen a horrible accident last week, I can't imagine how much worse this was.

Since the golf cart was on Buena Vista in a traffic circle, he was in the wrong unless it was a street legal cart - and still in the wrong since he was going in the wrong direction in the traffic circle.

You do have to wonder what the heck they were doing on Buena Vista south of 466A at 9:15 at night. No reason to be there at night. No reason to be going in the wrong direction of a traffic circle, either.

Katzbox is probably right, as usual. People go down to explore the new area, perhaps at night because there is no security person there to stop them. Sadly, being in an area that is not yet open, they might have thought there would be no other traffic, and tried to take a short cut back. It was not to be.

This is how curiosity can kill the cat. It saddens me that this has happened. I hope that the survivor is OK. Let's all be extra careful.

Question

Can a street legal cart cross 466A? If a cart uses a tunnel there are barricades on the cart path at BV.
