Authorities say a 6-year-old central Pennsylvania boy is dead after being hit by a go-kart in a store parking lot. The Dauphin County Coroner's Office says Avery Wood of Reinholds died Monday. Police say he was struck by a go-kart driven by 42-year-old Bryan Wood on Sunday afternoon in East Cocalico Township. Officials did not specify Bryan Wood's relationship with the boy other than to classify them as relatives.

A 15-year-old girl was also injured. She was treated at a hospital and released.

Police are continuing to investigate the accident.
