PRESTON, Idaho (AP) -- A 13-year-old boy has died of injuries he sustained in a go-cart crash last week, and another go-cart driver has been charged in connection with the crash.

Police in the southeastern Idaho town of Preston say Andy Zapolski was driving a go-cart on a city street Oct. 23 when he was rear-ended by a go-cart driven by 39-year-old John E. Kautz. Police say Kautz was intoxicated at the time of the crash; he has been charged with felony vehicular manslaughter.

Zapolski was flown to Primary Children's Medical Center in Salt Lake City for treatment of severe head trauma; he died Monday.
