DUNE ACRES, Ind. -- Police say a Massachusetts woman was fatally injured when she fell from a golf cart after attending a wedding reception in northwestern Indiana.

Porter County police arrested a 27-year-old California man on drunken driving charges. Police say he had a blood-alcohol content of 0.13 percent while driving the golf cart about 4 a.m. Sunday from the reception site in the town of Dune Acres along Lake Michigan.

Police say 25-year-old Jennie Welch of Brighton, Mass., fell from the cart as it went down a steep hill. The Times of Munster reports that Welch was found bleeding and unconscious, then died Sunday afternoon at an Indianapolis hospital.
