SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -
Three people were hurt, one seriously, in an accident involving a golf cart in Old Town Scottsdale on Monday.
Scottsdale police said the golf cart was going south on 75th Street just south of Camelback Road when it hit a depression in the road and lost its front wheels, causing it to roll.
Natalie De Pace, 29, of Gilbert was riding in the rear seat and suffered a broken arm, broken neck and lost several teeth, police said.
The driver of the 1996 cart, 34-year-old Akop Akopyan, of Phoenix, suffered a broken ankle, and a second rear-seat passenger, 31-year-old Paul Archer, of Tempe, suffered minor abrasions and complained of back and neck pain, police said.
There were no seat belts in the rear passenger seat, police said, and they didn't know if the driver was wearing a seat belt, police said.
All patients were taken to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn for treatment, police said, and 75th Street was closed to traffic for about five hours.
