LAKE DELTON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin police say an Iowa man who hit his head after losing control of his go-cart has died.

The accident happened Wednesday about 5:15 p.m. at Alligator Alley Adventures Go-Kart Track in Lake Delton.

Authorities say the 45-year-old lost control of his vehicle and struck a wooden post along the track. Witnesses say there were no other go-carts near him at the time of the crash.

A medical helicopter was called in. But a doctor declared him dead at the scene about 45 minutes after the accident.

The man and his family were visiting Lake Delton from the DeWitt, Iowa, area. His name has not been released.
