UPDATE: Iowa Man Killed In Go-Kart Crash
LAKE DELTON, Wis. (AP) --
Lake Delton police have released the name of the Iowa man who died after losing control of his go-kart at a Wisconsin track.
Police say 45-year-old Wade Wiese, of Charlotte, Iowa, died Wednesday at Alligator Alley Adventures Go-Kart Track in Lake Delton.
Authorities say he lost control of his vehicle and struck a wooden post along the track, and suffered a fatal head injury. Witnesses say there were no other go-karts near him at the time.
A medical helicopter was called in. But a doctor declared him dead at the scene about 45 minutes after the accident.
The man was visiting Wisconsin with his family.
State inspectors have been at the track. Owner Orlando Pedroza says the go-kart ride passed inspection earlier this year.
