Golf cart and truck collide on campus

Golf cart and truck collide on campus

A collision took place on College Drive between a NIC Physical Plant golf cart and a student’s truck.

Witness Mike Morgan, CITE major, Post Falls, said the cart was coming down College Drive after getting off of Hubbard Ave. at the same time the truck was approaching the parking lot outside the Hedlund building.

Morgan said the collision occurred when the golf cart swerved to the right in a failed effort to avoid the truck.

Both the student and the driver of the golf cart, Director of Facilities Operations Mike Halpern, declined to comment.

Neither party appeared to have suffered injury.

The truck appeared to have minor damage, but the golf cart had to be removed from the scene by a trailer.
