Ben Hogan on Early Golf Cart
Ben Hogan riding in an early golf cart following an injury in a head-on collision with a Greyhound bus on a fog-shrouded bridge east of Van Horn, Texas, about 150 miles east of El Paso on February 2, 1949.  Hogan threw himself across Valerie in order to protect her, and would have been killed had he not done so, as the steering column punctured the driver's seat.  The accident left Hogan with a double-fracture of the pelvis, a fractured collar bone, a left ankle fracture, a chipped rib, and near fatal blood clots;  he would suffer lifelong circulation problems and other physical limitations.  His doctors said he might never walk again, let alone play golf competitively.  He left the hospital on April 1, 59 days after the accident.
