HOLMDEL, N.J. (CBS/AP) — Police in New Jersey say a 60-year-old man died when he crashed a go-kart into a tree at a birthday party.
Police say party guests at the Holmdel property said people were taking turns using the go-kart Sunday night. Authorities say Boris Serebrenik, of Edgewater, drove the go-kart in the driveway and crashed into a tree.
Police say Serebrenik suffered a severe head injury in the crash. Two nurses performed CPR on the victim before first responders arrived. Serebrenik was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police also say that the gas-powered go-kart was small and did not have any restraint system.
Serebrenik wasn’t wearing a helmet when he crashed.
