Runaway Golf Cart Goes For 85 Yards at Cowboys Stadium, Jerry Jones Signs It to 5 Year Deal

Runaway Golf Cart

During celebrations at the end of last night’s (Sat. 12/17)  Texas 5A-Division II high school championship football game ( Spring Dekaney beat Cibolo Steele)  at the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, an unmanned, electric golf cart ploughed into a crowd at a football game, injuring the head coach and several supporters.

Spring Dekaney head coach Willie Amendola was in the middle of an interview when the cart knocked him and several bystanders to the ground.

One man was taken to hospital with a leg injury, and several others were hit by the cart but released by medical staff after being checked out at the stadium.

TV cameras showed a stunned Amendola falling backwards into the passenger seat of the golf cart as he tried to gain control of the vehicle. A field worker managed to jump on board and turn the engine off.

According to the Associated Press, one sports commentator said:

‘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.'”

It was unclear how the vehicle got loose. Stadium workers had been picking up fluorescent orange sideline yard markers and pylons after the game when the cart unexpectedly took off.
