Suspect arrested in hit-run go-cart death
WESTMINSTER ” Police said Friday they have arrested a suspect in a hit-and-run collision that killed an 8-year-old boy in a go-cart in this northwest Denver suburb.
Sean Christopher Daniels, 31, of Westminster was arrested for investigation of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
Police said Daniels was believed to be driving a 1995 Chevrolet truck that struck a go-cart carrying Quinton Von Duyke and his brother, 10-year-old Kaeden Von Duyke, on a Westminster street on June 23.
Quinton, a passenger in the go-cart, was killed and Kaedon, who was driving, was injured, police said.
Neither brother was wearing a helmet and only Quinton was wearing a seat belt, police said. Kaeden was thrown from the cart, police said.
The boys were staying with their grandparents at the time while their parents were on vacation, police said.
Police said an officer located the suspect truck in Westminster Thursday night and Daniels was arrested early Friday at a campground at Steamboat Lake State Park by Routt County sheriff’s deputies and park rangers.
Investigators have not said how they knew Daniels was at the park, about 125 miles northwest of Westminster.
