Officials release name of victim in fatal golf cart collision


Officials have released the name of a man who died in a golf cart accident Tuesday.

A police spokesperson said Robby Wayne Chapman, 47, of Port Neches, was riding a golf cart near HWY 366 and 4th Street in Port Neches around 7:30 p.m.

The police spokesperson said that the preliminary investigation indicates Chapman failed to yield right of way at the stop sign on 4th Street and pulled out in front of a vehicle on Hwy 366. The golf cart was struck by the vehicle on the driver's side of the golf cart.

Chapman sustained serious injuries and later died.

Investigators do not believe speed was a factor but visibility was less than ideal due to slightly foggy conditions.

The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
