Two children and one adult are being treated for minor injuries after a woman drove a golf buggy into a crowd at a charity golf event in Melbourne today.
It is believed the woman was driving the buggy with a male passenger when a set of golf clubs they were carrying came into contact with the buggy's accelerator and pushed the vehicle forward about 2.40pm.
Ninemsn understands that one child suffered leg injuries and another child suffered head lacerations.
A woman in her 50s suffered lower-leg injuries and was taken to Box Hill Hospital for further observation.
All injuries were said to be non-life-threatening.
A spokeswoman for Ambulance Victoria said the driver of the buggy was “distraught” and was being treated for shock.
The event was held at Chirnside Park’s Heritage Golf and Country Club to raise money for children and families affected by cancer.
