Two kids hurt in Rutherford Co. go-kart crash


Two children were hurt Sunday morning when the go-kart they were riding crashed in Rutherford County.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said neither the 14-year-old nor 10-year-old was restrained or wearing a helmet when the vehicle struck a drainage culvert along North Lovvorn Road just before noon.

THP said the two were riding in the two-seater go-kart without parental consent at the time of the crash.

The 14-year-old was transported by medical helicopter to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, while the 10-year-old was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt, THP said.

No other information has been released, including their conditions.
