TIFFIN — Two boys were thrown from a golf cart Sunday after it overturned on Seneca Township Road 131, about six miles south of Tiffin.
One of the boys, Austin Chapman, 12, of Clyde, was taken by his father to Mercy Hospital in Tiffin following the 3:15 p.m. wreck. No information was available about his condition yesterday.
The driver of the golf cart, Joshua Bauders, 17, of Clyde, was the other youth ejected from the cart. He refused treatment at the scene.
