An 80-year-old Hart man was killed Saturday, Sept. 14 after overturning a golf cart in the vicinity of North Water and West Highpoint roads in Hart Township.
According to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast, Charles Zamborowski was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:44 p.m. accident.
Mast said upon the deputies arrival, they found that it wasn’t an automobile, but instead a golf cart involved in the incident. The deputies found the golf cart rolled on its passenger side with Zamborowski trapped underneath it.
From the investigation at the scene, deputies believe the victim was driving south along Water Road, the golf cart hit an obstruction which caused it to roll on its side and Zamborowski was then trapped under the canopy of the golf cart.
The responding deputies lifted the golf cart off Zamborowski and immediately started first aid. Hart Fire and Life EMS then arrived on scene, but efforts to revive Zamborowski were unsuccessful.
Assisting at the scene were Oceana County Marine Deputies, Life EMS, Hart Fire and Michigan State Police.
