NC Boy Killed in Go-Cart Accident

Comments (0)
A 6-year-old boy has died from injures he suffered when his go-cart collided with a car off NC 111 in Chinquapin, North Carolina. The youngser apparently did not the other vehicle when he entered the roadway.

Shockingly, the driver of the car was actually employed as a secretary at the elementary school the boy attended. Car accidents are always sad but are especially heart-wrenching when a fatality is involved, particularly with such a young victim. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family

Go-carts are some of the most dangerous recreational vehicles. They routinely crash and flip over when drivers lose control. More than 10,000 injuries are attributed to go-cart accidents each year in the Unted States. Not surprisingly, many of those injured were children.

Despite the scary numbers, many kids love go-carts, and their popularity has increased yearly. If your children ask for a go-cart, consider visiting a go-cart track, where safety is a top priority. Expert mechanics and safety supervisors will be on hand to oversee the safe operation of these vehicles. Make no mistak: Go-carts are most certainly vehicles and should be treated as such.
