Payne's mother, Dashun, said her son had been hanging out with friends before returning home for a snack. He left his home and was riding on the Kart, which belongs to a friend, when the accident happened.

Dashun Payne said Tavaris was into cars and machines and wanted to be a mechanic when he grew up.
