October 6th, 2009: Man Killed In Golf Course Accident

A round of golf turned deadly for a man from Garland, Texas.
Sixty-one year-old William Grant was playing in a tournament at Sherrill Park Golf Course in Richardson, when he overshot the 12th green.  Police Sgt. Kevin Perlich says Grant's ball went about 10 feet down an embankment.  Grant went to retrive the ball but fell over the edge head first.

Witnesses on the other side of the embankment dialed 911, but Grant could not be saved.  He was pronounced dead at Parkland late Friday evening.  Sgt. Perlich says this tragic accident should serve as a reminder to be aware of your surroundings even if your just on the golf course.
