Highlands Boulevard fatal go kart accident
A 15-year-old Lake Placid teenager was killed last weekend when the go-cart he was driving collided with a 2005 Chevy Impala at about 12:50 am on Highlands Boulevard. The driver of the go-cart was traveling northbound and the Impala was southbound on Highlands when the Impala entered the opposing lane to pass traffic. The driver of the Impala could not see the go-cart because it did not have lighting attached and sits very low to the ground. The impact sent the go-cart into a spin into the northbound lane where it came to rest on the east shoulder. Paramedics pronounced the teen dead at the scene. No one in the Impala suffered any injuries.
