The 27-year-old driver of a go-kart was killed Sunday evening after being struck from the rear by a pickup truck and knocked off the road.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, Cody Liller was driving his go-kart eastbound on Central Avenue toward Warbler Street in Pasco County around 7 p.m. when a 64-year-old driving a GMC Sierra collided with the back of his vehicle.
Deputies say that Liller was “propelled off” of the road and came to a final rest on the shoulder. Liller was taken to the Florida Hospital of Zephyrhills where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the pickup truck sustained no injuries.
Charges are pending, according to FHP.
