SPARTANBURG, S.C. - A 52-year-old Gaffney woman has died several days after falling from a moving golf cart.
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says Melanie Blanton Whisenant died Wednesday morning at a hospital.
Fowler says Whisenant was a front seat passenger on the golf cart being driven by her husband just before midnight Saturday. Fowler says the woman reached down to get something from the floorboard, fell out and hit the pavement.
Whisenant was taken to the hospital for treatment from a head injury. Officials are still investigating her death, and an autopsy is planned.
