Toddler hospitalized after golf cart accident

A toddler was hospitalized as a precaution Thursday following an accident involving a golf cart in the Potomac area, Montgomery Count officials said.

Fire and rescue crews were called to the 15000 block of River Road for the report of a pedestrian accident involving a golf cart about 5:30 p.m., said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a fire department spokesman. A toddler was found conscious and crying at the scene but had no signs of visible trauma.

The child, whose age and gender were not released, was flown to Children’s Hospital as a precaution, Garcia said. It was not immediately clear if the child was hit by a golf cart or fell from it.

No further details were available.
