A Davidsonville woman who claims she was permanently injured after being struck by a neighbor's golf cart, filed a $3 million lawsuit claiming negligence yesterday in Circuit Court.
Alice E. Silbaugh, of the 800 block of Kings Retreat Drive, said she was standing with her husband, W. Lawrence Silbaugh, in the driveway of their home about 8:45 p.m. on July 17, 1989. George E. Dunn, who lives across the street from the Silbaughs, drove up in a golf cart and stopped to let a passenger off, the lawsuit said.
Mrs. Silbaugh claims the cart suddenly accelerated and struck her, trapping her underneath. The cart continued forward, dragging Mrs. Silbaugh, until it rolled over and down an embankment beside the driveway. The cart rolled over Mrs. Silbaugh several times before coming to a stop, the suit said.
