Gilmer man, 74, killed in golf cart accident

GILMER, TX (KLTV) - A 74-year-old Gilmer man was killed Wednesday morning after an accident on FM 49 west of Gilmer.

DPS Corporal Sandy Taylor says Alfred Keck was traveling westbound on his Club Car golf cart on FM 49 when he unexpectedly made a left hand turn into a private drive.

Taylor says Aldon Marty, 38, of Hawkins, was traveling "well under the speed limit," when his 1997 Chevrolet truck struck Keck and the golf cart.

Keck was transported to ETMC Gilmer, where he was pronounced dead. He suffered blunt force trauma to the head.

Marty sustained minor burns from the deployment of the airbags in his truck. He was not taken to the hospital.
