PALM BEACH, Fla. — Two people riding in a golf cart on Palm Beach were rushed to a hospital Tuesday after they were hit by a car, police said.

One of the victims, an 83-year-old man, later died in the hospital and the second golf cart occupant remains in the hospital, though his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Police said the riders were crossing the road at the Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course, located in the 2300 block of South Ocean Boulevard, when they were struck.

A witness said one person was flown to the hospital and another was taken by ambulance.

The driver of the other vehicle involved remained on scene and was not hurt.
