A 12-year-old Evans boy was sent to an area hospital as a precaution today after the golf car on which he and another boy were riding flipped in an Evans neighborhood.
The boy, along with a 13-year-old, was riding the vehicle on nature trails inside the Sumter Landing subdivision, off Mullikin Road, about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when the vehicle swerved off the trail, hit a stump and overturned, said Columbia County Sheriff's Deputy Ryan Brockman.
Both boys were thrown from the vehicle. The 13-year-old was unhurt. The 12-year-old was complaining of shoulder pain and was taken to Doctors Hospital as a precaution, Brockman said.
