LAKE DELTON, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in the Wisconsin Dells area continue to investigate the death of a go-cart driver.

A 45-year-old Iowa man was killed late Wednesday night at the Alligator Alley track.

Lake Delton officers said the man had a severe head injury, after his cart went out of control and struck a wood post on a side of the track. No other go-carts were said to be near him.

A med-flight team from UW Hospital in Madison responded -- but rescuers could not save the man. He died at the scene.

His name was not immediately released. Officials said he was visiting the Dells with relatives from DeWitt Iowa.

Alligator Alley is located next to the Extreme World amusement park in Lake Delton where Teagan Marti fell 100 feet to the ground from the Terminal Velocity ride three years ago.
