A 72-year-old man died after a collision he had with a car while driving a golf cart in Palm Beach Gardens. John McCasey, a Jupiter resident, was thrown from the golf cart as he drove into the crosswalk at Donald Ross Road and Pasteur Boulevard after being hit by a 2017 Honda CRV. According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO), the accident occurred at 12:30pm on December 29th 2018 where the significant injuries McCasey sustained required he be taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center. He died at 2:30pm later that day as a result.
The driver of the CRV, Stephen Potts, 64 of The Villages was not injured during the collision and it does not appear that he will face any criminal charges in connection to the crash according police records. It may be the case that Potts was at fault and if confirmed as such, the family of the now deceased John McCasey will possibly have a valid case against Stephen Potts for the Wrongful Death.
