TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Two camp counselors were sent to the hospital with head injuries after a golf cart crash Monday afternoon at Camp Sycamore Valley in Tippecanoe County.
The crash happened just before 4 p.m. at the Girl Scout camp off State Road 26 East.
Deputies said the golf cart was driven down a steep hill and became uncontrollable. That's when investigators said the golf cart flipped on its side. The four counselors inside the vehicle were ejected.
Beth Werner, 19, was a passenger in the golf cart. Sheriff Tracy Brown said she was taken to Franciscan Saint Elizabeth East Hospital with a head injury.
Eighteen-year-old Rebecca Farmer was taken to IU Health Arnett Hospital, also with a head injury. The driver, 22-year-old Erin Bauer, and a juvenile whose name is not being released, were treated at the scene for abrasions.
As of Monday night, Werner and Farmer were listed in fair condition.
