PROVO, Utah — A man suffered fatal injuries while driving a go-kart on a street in Provo Tuesday night.

Wednesday the deceased was identified as 46-year-old Chad Norton.

Sgt. Nisha King with Provo Police said officers responded to the area of 750 South Meadow Drive around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday after Norton crashed while operating a self-made go-kart.

Police say Norton was driving southbound on Meadow Drive when he hit a speed bump, lost control of the vehicle and impacted a concrete curb.

Norton was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

There were no other vehicles involved and no reports of further injuries beyond the fatality.

Investigators did not find a helmet or a seat belt in the wreckage of the vehicle, and King said go-karts are not allowed on the streets of Provo.
