Woman Injured, Run Over By Golf Cart On Beaver Island

BEAVER ISLAND (WWJ) – An elderly woman is hospitalized after she was accidentally run over by a golf cart on an island in Lake Michigan.

It happened shortly before 4 p.m. Friday in the area of Forest Avenue, near King’s Highway on Beaver Island.

According to the  Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of a golf cart — 71-year-old Ron Stipp of Beaver Island — backed over 76-year-old Suzie Fisher, also of Beaver Island, just after she got off the cart.

The golf cart was rolling downhill when Stipp put his vehicle in reverse, according to sheriff’s officials, not seeing Fisher and knocking her over.

Fisher suffered injuries to her neck, back and ankle. She was transported to McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital in Petoskey for treatment.

Sheriff’s officials said speed and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the accident.

An investigation is ongoing.
