FIRST ON 3 Update: Pedestrian hurt in golf cart accident involving Southport city manager
SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — A woman was taken to the hospital this afternoon after Southport Police say City Manager Kerry McDuffie hit her with his golf cart.
Southport Police Chief Jerry Dove says McDuffie was pulling out of Southport City Hall in his personal golf cart at about 1:30 p.m. when he hit a woman walking down the street. When reached by WWAY, Dove said the woman has bruising and swelling on an arm, leg and shoulder, but seemed to be in good spirits. Dove said McDuffie was not hurt.
Chief Dove said the investigation into what happened continues, and he could not say yet what charges if any McDuffie may face. He said he is still taking statements, but his report should be finished tomorrow. Dove also said McDuffie uses the golf cart as his personal vehicle. He does not think McDuffie has a license.
McDuffie did not immediately return messages for comment.
