A driverless E-Z-Go electric golf cart went bezerk at a high school football game and plowed into several people. Google has recently patented their our driverless road car technology, also demonstrated with golf carts, but E-Z-Go’s effort looks to be a long way behind.
All joking aside, this incident happened after Spring Dekaney beat Cibolo Steele for the high school championship football game played at the Cowboys Stadium in Texas.
Spring Dekaney head coach Willie Amendola was giving an interview when the cart knocked him backwards into the passenger seat and continued to plow through several bystanders who went to ground. Amendola valiantly struggled to gain control of the cart himself but bailed out for his own safety.
A fiery Hollywood-esque explosion was avoided when a stadium worker managed to jump into the driver seat and stop the cart with a swift stomp on the brake pedal.
After all the mayhem had ended, one man was taken to hospital with a leg injury and several others were released after being checked out at the stadium by medical staff.
One sports commentator exclaimed: 'We have a disturbance down the field. Apparently one of the carts on the field got loose and I think there have been some folks injured in this. That's like a runaway cart there. And it finally took someone to stop it. That's a scary thing.'
Spring Dekaney, from Harris County, Texas, beat Cibolo Steele 34-14 during the Class 5A Divison II state championships. Officials are still trying to work out how the golf cart went on a Deathrace 2000 like rampage, but we think that players from the losing Cibolo Steele team may be able to shed light on the incident.
