Go-Karts recalled a second time after girl is killed

WASHINGTON — An Indiana company is recalling about 91,000 Go-Karts for repair after one teen-age girl was killed and two others seriously injured when their hair got caught in partially exposed engine parts behind the seats.

Manco Products Inc., of Fort Wayne, Ind., received a report of a 13-year-old Idaho girl dying from a fractured neck when her hair got caught in the drive chain and sprocket of a Go-Kart she was driving, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Monday. In Michigan, another 13-year-old girl suffered a scalping injury, and a 16-year-old girl lost consciousness and suffered severe head injuries.

The vehicles in the current recall were sold under the Manco, Phoenix, Fox, Rattler and Coyote labels. The one- and two-seat carts are powered by gasoline engines and most have brush bars to protect riders from low tree branches and other foliage.

The recall involves two groups of carts. All have a black serial number on a silver label located on the floor pan immediately in front of the driver's seat.

The first group has black plastic deck covers over the rear axle and brake. Their serial numbers are: 1757022 through 1855821, and 3000010 through 3050632.
