A state appeals court has revived a lawsuit by a golfer who suffered a serious leg injury when he was hit by a cart driven by another golfer.

Thomas McKeown's suit had been thrown out previously by a lower court.

McKeown claims another golfer in his foursome shouldn't have let his 82-year-old father-in-law drive the cart because he didn't know how to operate it.

Brian Robinson, a Scottish native visiting the U.S., said an object fell onto the floor of the cart and wedged under the brake pedal, preventing him from stopping before he ran into McKeown at Beaver Brook Country Club in Annandale in 2015.
