3 injured after golf cart rolls in Scottsdale

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Police say a driver and two passengers are recovering
from injuries after a golf cart accident in Old Town Scottsdale.

Scottsdale police say the cart hit a depression in the road Monday and lost its
front wheels, causing it to roll.

They say 29-year-old Natalie De Pace of Gilbert was riding in the rear seat and
suffered a broken arm, broken neck and lost several teeth.

Her boyfriend — 31-year-old Paul Archer of Tempe — also was riding in the back
and suffered minor abrasions.

The driver of the cart — 34-year-old Akop Akopyan of Phoenix — suffered a
broken ankle.

All three were taken to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn for treatment.

Archer told police that Akopyan was driving fast and recklessly, but Akopyan
says he was only going about 20 mph.
