Man 'lost brakes' before golf course crash

An elderly man whose high-speed run through a Pennsylvania golf course in a sports utility vehicle ended in a fiery crash told police he had a brake problem.

Paul Lazear, 82, and his four passengers were pulled out of the flaming wreckage of the SUV by golfers at Cloverleaf Golf Course in Delmont. The vehicle struck a parked golf cart and bounced off five trees before bursting into flames and coming to a rest, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Wednesday.

Police said Lazear told officers he '"lost his brakes and couldn't stop," the Posts-Gazette said.

Lazear and his wife Carol, 72, were hospitalized with minor injuries and two other passengers, Ruth Daniels, 83, and Flora Lee Katz, 74, were hospitalized in moderate condition. The fifth person in the vehicle, Bertram Katz, 80, was airlifted to a hospital. Doctors said all five are expected to recover.

The driver told police he had lost control of his brakes in the course's parking lot and wound up on the course.
