Nebraska man dies after fall from golf cart

Posted: Updated:

GRETNA, Neb. (AP) - A man who was tossed from a moving golf car in a residential area near Omaha has died nearly a week after the accident.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that Patrick Jurgensen, of Gretna, died at an Omaha hospital on Wednesday night.

Jurgensen was a passenger in the rear of the golf cart around 9:15 p.m. on July 10 as it traveled in a residential area of Gretna. The driver of the golf cart was making a turn when Jurgensen was tossed into the intersection and suffered a head injury.

Sheriff's Lt. Brian Richards says the accident investigation is continuing so the county attorney's office can determine whether charges are merited.
