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.
