According to information provided by Sidney Police Sgt. Chris Burmeister, officers and Sidney Fire Department Medics were dispatched to the 500 block of Kossuth Street around 8:26 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, on the report of a golf cart crash with injuries.

Four adults were on the eastbound golf cart on Kossuth Street when driver Kelly J. Michael, 47, of Sidney, lost control and crashed, ejecting passengers, Harold W. Fouts, 50, Jimmy R. Walling, 36, and Amber A. Wilson, 24, all of Sidney. The vehicle flipped onto its side and slid down the road.
