    Strange but true accident

    A unique collision story involving a Mirage. As if we didn't have enough to worry about looking for deer...

    Dang - 45 years old, stole a golf cart, drove it on the wrong side of the road at night, and now he's dead.

    Just found video. You knew alcohol was involved somewhere. Check out the Mirage on its roof!

    Holy ****. That's brutal!
    Too much booze and golf carts = chaos. The company my dad used to work for got banned from a golf course for jumping and rolling golf carts during the company golf tournament. It was pretty funny to hear a bunch of super safety oriented commercial pilots and engineers going bat**** crazy on the golf course

    I'd say the trailing axle is bent. If it broke the wheel would be dangling by the ebrake cable or laying in the bush. Maybe he did some barrel rolls?

    The bizarre thing is the Mirage driver was charged with DUI.
