Wrongful Death Suit Filed After Boy Dies in Go-Kart Accident
Claiming the Horn Rapids Kart Track was negligently designed, maintained and operated, the parents of a 12-year-old boy killed in a go-kart accident there in 2008 have filed a wrongful death suit against the city of Richland, Washington and Tri-City Kart Club which leases the kart track from the city.
The young boy’s kart slid off the track during a hairpin turn, crossed a grassy slope and crashed through a wire cable fence at a high rate of speed. He died of injuries to his neck vertebrae and jugular vein. The boy was an experienced go-kart driver who had won events in his class just weeks before the accident.
Also named in the lawsuit are the mechanics who worked on the go-kart’s brakes immediately before the race, race organizers and the International Kart Federation.
