MILFORD, Del.- A 14-year-old boy riding a go-kart was killed after colliding with a car in Milford on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

The crash happened around 4:40 p.m. on Cedar Creek Road south of Wilkins Road. Delaware State Police said the boy was operating a go-kart on the shoulder of Cedar Creek Road when he swerved into the path of an oncoming Toyota Camry.

The driver of the Camry, a 36-year-old woman from Lincoln, Del., was unable to avoid hitting the go-kart, police said, causing the boy to be thrown from the vehicle. Police said the Camry came to a stop a short distance from the crash site with the go-kart partially lodged under its bumper.

The 14-year-old operator of the go-kart was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. His identity is not being released while his family can be notified. The 36-year-old driver of the Camry was not injured.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.

Cedar Creek Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
