An 18-year-old Holley resident was seriously injured early Saturday morning when the unlit, slow-moving golf cart he was riding in on Route 237 in Byron was struck by a car.
The driver of the cart, Cortney L. Greene, 18, of North Byron Road, Byron, faces possible alcohol-related charges.
Taken by Mercy Flight to Strong, where he's listed in guarded condition, was Zachary J. Rusin, 18, of Route 237, Holley.
Rusin suffered head trauma and internal injuries.
Greene also suffered a head injury and was taken by Mercy EMS to Strong, where she's listed in stable condition.
The driver of the automobile, Emmaleigh R. Odom, 19, of Starr Road, Pavilion, was not injured.
Odom was reportedly driving a 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo northbound on Route 237 at 12:07 a.m. Her car crested a hill and struck the rear of the unlit golf cart.
Both Greene and Rusin were ejected from the cart, which then crossed both lanes of Route 237 and struck a parked car.
The accident is being investigated by Deputy Howard Carlson, Deputy John Weis and Investigator Timothy Weis.
The Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by Mercy EMS, Mercy Flight and the Byron and South Byron volunteer fire departments.
