CONROE, Texas—A father and son were injured Sunday evening after their golf cart fell off a bridge and into a creek in Conroe, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said Jamie Teran, 36, and his son were crossing a bridge in their golf cart at the River Plantation Golf Course when one of their tires slipped off the track.

Teran over-corrected, crashed through a guardrail and fell nearly 30 feet.

The cart landed upside down in a rocky creek, trapping the father and son.

The son managed to crawl out with minor injuries, but the father suffered a severely injured leg.

The two were spotted by a constable on routine patrol around 5:30 p.m., who called for assistance.

The River Plantation Fire Department responded to the scene and stabilized the two victims for transport.

Teran was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. His son was also taken to a hospital to be checked out.
