RCMP are investigating the death of a five-year-old boy who was killed in a go-cart accident on the Saddle Lake First Nation east of Edmonton.

Witnesses say Tayden Cardinal-Moses was playing with the go-cart in a driveway, along with some other children, on Saturday evening.

The go-cart started moving, but Cardinal-Moses was unable to control it. The vehicle went about 100 metres before it collided with a parked pickup truck.

Nearby adults were unable to stop the go-cart before it hit the truck.

The five-year-old was not wearing a helmet and had little experience with the machine.

Saddle Lake is about 175 kilometres east of Edmonton.
