A one-year-old boy from North Carolina died after the golf cart that he and his family drove into a dimple and got out of hand.

The authorities said that Kipton Jester, one from Denver, North Carolina, and six family members were on a road in Mooresville, North Carolina, in a golf cart when the accident occurred around 5:40 PM on Sunday.

The golf cart experienced a steering mechanical defect after it hit a hole, which led to the car falling over, the Charlotte Observer reported.

State Highway Patrol troopers told WSOC that a bolt has fallen out of the steering wheel, causing the wheel to turn and the vehicle to tip over.

There were three adults – two in the front and one in the back – and four children in the car at the time of the crash.

Kipton and another one-year-old boy were each held by the two adults in the front of the car, while the adult sat in the back with two three-year-old girls in the rear-facing seats.

Authorities said that Andrew Jester, 33, from Mooresville, was driving the car. It is unclear what his exact relationship with Kipton is.

The boy and four other family members - three adults and another one-year-old boy - were evicted from the golf cart. Two three-year-old girls seated themselves and stayed inside
