A 9-year-old Aurora girl whose go-cart collided with a maintenance vehicle at Grand Junction Motor Speedway has died.
Mesa County Sheriff's spokeswoman Sally Weese says Taybor Duncan's go-cart rolled multiple times after it clipped a maintenance vehicle on the track Sunday morning.
Weese says Taybor had just crested a hill and was descending when her go-cart collided with a trailer being hauled by a 4-wheeler that was trying to reach racers in another accident on the track.
A speedway employee was operating the 4-wheeler.
Weese says Taybor was wearing a seat belt, helmet and protective chest plate. Sheriff's officials are investigating.
