MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (AP) One nurse is in critical condition and four others also are hospitalized after the golf cart they were riding at a central Indiana camp crashed.

Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis says one of the other four nurses is in fair condition and the others are in good condition.

The crash occurred at Bradford Woods, an outdoor center operated by Indiana University near Martinsville, about 30 miles southwest of Indianapolis. Bradford Woods Director Shay Dawson says in a statement that the cart was going down a paved road at the facility when it rolled onto its side Thursday afternoon and ejected the nurses.

Dawson says the nurses were working for Camp Little Red Door, which serves to children with cancer, and Camp Independence, whose campers have cancer or sickle cell anemia.
