GETTYSBURG — Police say one person was seriously hurt when that person fell off a rental golf cart in central Pennsylvania.

Police in Cumberland Township were called to the Battlefield Resort in Gettysburg late Saturday afternoon for a report of a fall.

Police say the individual, who hasn’t been identified, and three others took the golf cart for a joyride to a convenience store.

Police say one of the riders fell off the back of the cart and hit his head on the pavement while heading back to the resort.

That person has been airlifted to a hospital for treatment. Police say they believe alcohol contributed to the fall.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
