A runaway golf cart injured several spectators and sent five to the hospital at the U.S. Open on Friday morning.

According to a report from, a vendor delivered boxes in a golf cart near a concession stand when one of the boxes apparently fell onto the accelerator.

The cart started moving near No. 16 and drove off into a crowd of people.

One eye-witness said someone started running after the cart with the hopes of slowing it down.

“We were standing in the concession line on the 16th hole when all of a sudden there was a runaway cart and one guy running after it, then a bunch of people running after it. It was actually coming straight for the concession line and then it turned, just on its own, and it didn’t stop! It started driving in circles. It ran over like, five people.”

Video shows the cart riding driver-less around the course.

Five victims were reportedly injured in the accident, while two suffered more serious injuries.

The California Highway Patrol revealed one victim suffered a broken arm and another a spinal injury.

It's a scary incident that could have resulted in more serious injuries for those on the course.
