A woman had to be airlifted out of the Old Bethpage Restoration after suffering a skull fracture when the golf cart she was in crashed into a tree, police said.
A 25-year-old employee was operating a Nassau County Park golf cart at approximately 5:30 p.m. on the trails of the Old Bethpage Restoration on Round Swamp Road in Old Bethpage with a 25-year-old female employee as his passenger.
