3 Hospitalized After Motorcycle, Makeshift Go-Kart Collide

Officials say three people have been hospitalized after a motorcycle and a go-kart collided in Massachusetts. 

Barnstable police say the "makeshift go-kart" was accompanied by at least two dirt bikes when the group tried to cross state Route 28 in Cotuit Saturday night. 

The go-kart was struck by a westbound motorcycle, and the Cotuit Fire Department say first responders found it upside-down and engulfed in flames. 

The driver of the go-kart, Patrick O'Shaughnessy and his 23-year-old passenger, Sarah Williams, have been hospitalized in stable and serious conditions. 

Police say the motorcyclist, 34-year-old Staley Crowe, has also been hospitalized with non-life threatening facial injuries. 

The crash is still under investigation.
