Chinquapin, N.C. — Authorities said Wednesday that they are investigating the death Tuesday afternoon of a 6-year-old Duplin County boy on a go-cart.
Canyon River Hatcher was crossing a road off N.C. Highway 111 in Chinquapin at about 4 p.m. when his go-cart was struck by a 2007 Honda minivan driven by Tina Cavenaugh Batts, authorities said.
Authorities said the boy was riding beside his older brother, who was driving a four-wheeler, and apparently didn't see the oncoming vehicle.
