  1. Gee, go figure, if the dumbshit would have been sheltering in place he wouldn’t have ended up in this predicament. Instead he chose to be an asshole, tie up resources in both Fire/AMR response and at the hospital. But that’s right, according to some readers this whole Corona Virus thing is a “hoax” ….. yah right.

    • Sorry Vince, sorry to tie up medical personnel, trying to get my kids an hour out in the yard . Who sits and comments shit like this when someone gets hurt.. your real tough behind that keyboard.
      Jesus, this is what we’ve become, pussies, trashing a guy who could’ve died for reasons you have no idea, behind a keyboard. Get a life dude. Keep sheltering in place. Never go outside, asshole. The rest of you too. Pfft.

      • Whatever dude … You are still an idiot. Go find something else constructive to do with your life.

  2. A Shelter in place would have prevented this! That’s what he gets for being a non essential go kart racer.

  3. An “adult” drives a go-kart into a parked car? I want to be sympathetic…trying…ok, not feeling it. Don’t be stupid “adults”, ok?

  4. He was riding around on the street in front of his own house with his kids so mommy could take a conference call in peace. You’re allowed to be outside with your own household during shelter in place. The brakes malfunctioned and he broke his back and ribs so maybe people shouldn’t add insult to injury.

  5. Wow, what a bunch of assholes. I go in front of my own house and break my back trying to spend an hour outside with my kids, and I deserve this? So tough behind a keyboard. Get a life . I hope karma hits each and every one of you. Not even one comment asking if I was ok. Burn in hell keyboard commandos

  6. The shelter in place order does so say you can’t take a walk or in this case drive a go kart. Some of the people commenting are kind of jerks. This guy is a friend of mine and yes, it is a little stupid, BUT, shouldn’t we be allowed to have fun during this stressful time…..?? Stop being so jaded and learn to laugh. Jeez.

  7. Oh Sam put a D in your pie hole and shut up. After you’re done then you can laugh! Jeez. This shelter in place is not fun for any of us. The first responders have more important calls for service than dealing with a dumb ass go kart racer. You don’t like what you read here then don’t read it if it hurts your feelings.

  8. Oh Becca/Sam put a D in your pie holes and shut up. After you’re done then you can laugh! Jeez. This shelter in place is not fun for any of us. The first responders have more important calls for service than dealing with a dumb ass go kart racer. Bad Brakes this bad brakes that. Those injuries take a lot of speed. If you’re just in front of your house, that would not of happen. He went around the block or up the street to gain some speed. You don’t like what you read here then don’t read it if it hurts your feelings. Stop crying for a grown man. Jeez.

    • My comment looked like “crying”? I was giving people more facts about the incident since everyone wants to immediately have a negative opinion. The responders I hear are actually not as busy since they aren’t having to respond to people’s neighbors dogs barking or back pain they’ve had since 1994. One of them actually inquired about purchasing the go cart so I don’t think they were pissed or stressed about coming out to the call. This did happen in front of their house. So what if he drove out a few houses down and crashed back in front of his house? Any speed sliding under a car would be bad. So if he were on a bicycle riding around with his kids would you be so quick to talk crap? Probably. He was the only one hurt by the accident. Accidents happen. So move along Karen and I hope one day you tell someone in person to “shut their pie hole” and see how that works out.

  9. We all apologize for hurting everybody’s feelings so “guy you’re slamming” (I fixed your typo) go ahead and put one of your kids in the go kart and do it again. Hopefully your kids won’t get hurt. Troy is correct.

  10. Wow people can be serious asshats. I hope you’re ok, to the guy who got hurt. No one deserves to be hurt. And you’re certainly not stupid for trying to have a little fun with your kids during a time when we’re all stressed and upset and stuck basically doing nothing but waiting, for something we are unsure of, to happen. At least you spend time with your kids. More than a lot of people can say. I hope your recovery goes quick and smoothly. God bless you.
