Oakfield Township, MI – A peaceful Sunday afternoon turned perilous when a seven-year-old child was seriously injured after being ejected from a golf cart. 

The incident, which unfolded in rural northeastern Kent County, has left the local community in shock. It was around 4:20 p.m. when the accident occurred on McClain Street NE, close to Heintzelman Road, west of Greenville.

Authorities from the Kent County Sheriff’s Office report that an 11-year-old was at the helm of the golf cart with two seven-year-olds aboard as passengers. Tragedy struck when one of the younger passengers fell from the moving vehicle onto the roadway. The injured child was quickly transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, highlighting the dangers of allowing young children to operate such vehicles unsupervised. 

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the crash to determine the exact cause and to assess the necessary measures to prevent similar incidents in the future. As the investigation continues, the community is reminded of the importance of safety and supervision, particularly involving motorized vehicles and young operators.
