Kokomo, Indiana – The Howard County Sheriff’s Office said on Monday that two people died on Sunday evening after being struck by an automobile while riding in a golf cart outside of Kokomo.

The two were identified by police as Kokomo residents Richard Calloway, 83, and Elaine Calloway, 75.

According to the Howard County Sheriff’s Office, an automobile and a golf cart driven by two senior citizens collided on Sunday at about 5:45 p.m. near the intersection of Touby Pike and County Road 325 North.

That region is located south of S.R. 35, roughly northeast of Kokomo’s downtown.
