FREEDOM (WLUK) — An 86-year-old woman died after being trapped under a golf cart on her property in Outagamie County.

It happened just after 4:00 p.m. Wednesday at a home on County Highway C in the Town of Freedom.

Deputies say the woman and her husband were driving the golf cart around their property when they stopped to remove something in the way.

The woman accidentally hit the gas and the golf cart went down a steep embankment and rolled over, striking a culvert, deputies say.

When emergency responders arrived on scene, they say the woman was still trapped under the golf cart and was not breathing.
