Woman Dies After Being Thrown from Golf Cart


KEY LARGO, Fla. -- Authorities are investigating a golf cart mishap in Key Largo that killed an Illinois woman.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Nichole Ely of Peoria was thrown from the cart Friday night at the Ocean Reef Club and later died.
She was a passenger in the vehicle and apparently was not wearing a seatbelt when the cart made a sharp turn. She hit her head on the pavement.
An FHP spokesman says alcohol may have been involved in the accident.
