UPDATE: We now know the name of a man from the QCA who died in a go-carting accident at Wisconsin Dells on Wednesday, July 3, 2013.
According to his obituary, 46-year-old Wade Wiese of Charlotte, Iowa was killed in the accident.

Meanwhile, according to our Wisconsin NBC affiliate, the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services says amusement park rides are required to be inspected annually. The go-cart track where the accident occurred was inspected three weeks ago and passed. Inspectors are back at the track Friday and will continue to examine the scene next week. Until then, the owner has closed the park and continues to cooperate with the process.
