HUDSON — A 15-year-old girl has been released from the hospital following an accident that killed her twin sister and grandmother as the three tried to cross a road in a golf cart.

Officials at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte said Monday that Cressinda Chandler has been sent home after treatment. Trooper T.C. Williams of the N.C. Highway Patrol told the Hickory Daily Record that Chandler was riding with her twin sister, Kara Chandler of Granite Falls, and 59-year-old Karen Smith of Hudson when a car hit their golf cart.

Williams said Kara Chandler and Smith died at the scene.

Williams said it appeared that the driver of the cart did not see the vehicle driven by 19-year-old Kevin Mays. He said the accident is still under investigation.
