Man dies after crashing cart at Oregon coast golf course, deputies say

A Springfield man died after crashing a golf cart Saturday at a Coos Bay golf course, deputies say.

The Coos County Sheriff’s Office said the golf cart rolled after Frank A. Dilworth tried to drive it down a steep embankment. Bystanders and authorities tried to aid Dilworth, 50, but they were unsuccessful.

A passenger suffered minor injuries, deputies said.

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office didn’t immediately know the name of the golf course where the crash occurred.
