Bride Killed In Horror Golf Buggy Crash On Her Honeymoon

A newlywed was tragically killed on her honeymoon in Australia when the golf cart her husband was driving flipped over while making a U-turn.

Marina Morgan and her new husband Robbie were celebrating their nuptials on Hamilton Island when the horrific accident happened.

Mr Morgan managed to escape unharmed, but his 29-year-old wife tragically died at the scene, according to reports.

Following the accident, an impromptu first responder team including a doctor, an off-duty dentist and an off-duty firefighter rushed to the couple’s aid.

CPR was performed on Ms Morgan for 35 minutes but to no avail, reports the Mirror.

The couple, from Sydney, had been married for just 10 days when Ms Morgan died.

Queensland Police Inspector Anthony Cowan called the death a “tragic accident”, in a media interview, and said there was “no indication of alcohol or driving dangerous”.

‘It was just a tragic accident with a golf cart,’ he said in quotes reported by The Sun.

“There may have been some inexperience in driving these types of vehicles as it turned sideways and the woman fell and suffered life-threatening injuries.

“He just seems inexperienced in driving this type of vehicle, turned too fast and rolled sideways and unfortunately ended up with this result.

“It looks like no seat belts were being worn at the time; we’re back to the Fatal Five but now is not the time to dwell on what they should have done.

Inspector Cowan added that when Robbie tried to make a U-turn, the vehicle’s battery was low and he might have wanted to return to a charging point.

Graeme McIntyre, acting director of the Queensland Ambulance Service for the Mackay District, added that Ms Morgan had been placed in a ‘lateral position to clear her airway’ but had already suffered cardiac arrest when the paramedics arrived.

Hamilton Island is a popular tourist destination off the east coast of Queensland and golf carts are the main mode of transport.
