Two golfers were injured in a cart accident yesterday as the Women's District Golf Association's top division team matches began at Columbia Country Club.
Emily Baker and Nancy Davies, playing for Washingtonian Country Club against Argyle, were injured on the second hole at Columbia when their golf cart skidded on the moist turf and went out of control on a steep incline.
Both were thrown from the cart, which reportedly ran over Baker's legs.
"I was looking toward the green and I heard Nancy yell," said Jackie Shiff of Argyle, who was in the same foursome. "Emily was laying on the ground and the cart ran over her. When she landed, she hit her head and the back wheels crossed her at the ankles. As it went over Emily, it threw Nancy out."
Both were taken to Suburban Hospital and released. Baker said she had Suffered a mild concussion, bruised ankles and whiplash. Davies, the driver of the cart, had a bruised coccyx.
The Washingtonian-Argyle match was suspended and will be replayed. In the other two A division matches, defending champion Army Navy beat Bethesda, 8-1, and Congressional defeated Brooke Manor by the same score.
