BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – The Florida Highway Patrol reported a 48-year-old man and his 17-year-old son were ejected from their golf cart after being hit in the rear by an unknown pick-up truck near Harlock Road and Lake Washington Road in Melbourne on Monday evening.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the incident took place around 9 p.m. when the two victims were traveling northbound in a golf cart on Harlock Road, just north of the intersection of Lake Washington road.
“The unknown pick-up truck was traveling northbound as well and failed to slow down or stop for the golf cart traveling in the roadway,” said FHP in a release.

The unknown pick-up truck fled from the scene and was last seen traveling northbound on Harlock Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
