Golfer Killed after cart plunges off cliff.

From Fox Sports...

FALLBROOK, Calif. (AP) – A 65-year-old golfer died
Tuesday after his golf cart plunged 75 feet off a cliff and crashed
into a road below, authorities said.

The man teed off with
three friends on the second hole of the Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course in
northern San Diego County at around 10 a.m. and then got into his cart.

The
vehicle veered off the concrete pathway, traveled down a 25-foot
embankment and went over the edge of a cliff, California Highway Patrol
spokesman Tom Kerns said.

The recently retired real estate agent
from Irvine was ejected shortly before the cart hit the road beneath
the cliff and died on impact, Kerns said. His name was not immediately
released.

No one else was involved in the crash.

Investigators will inspect the golf cart for mechanical failures, Kerns said.

Duh!! Yeah it had mechanical failures.  It failed to stop at the edge of a cliff. My guess is this fellow had some medical event to precipitated the crash.
