Calif. woman driving go kart dies in collision

A 67-year-old Southern California woman was killed after she lost control of a go kart-like vehicle and veered into traffic on busy street.

Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Lloyd Downing said Sunday that Hwa Oh of Fullerton was with family members in the parking lot of a swap meet Saturday evening when she decided to take a turn on the vehicle.

But Oh lost control of the cart and ran through some bushes, across a sidewalk and onto a street in Stanton, where she was struck by a car. She was declared dead at a hospital.

Oh's daughter, Cindy Morrow, told The Orange County Register that her mother was a good driver, but speculated that she became nervous and couldn't control the vehicle.

No citations were issued.
