An investigation conducted by the Ohio Department of Agriculture found that a piece of metal in the shape of a letter “L” flew off the Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster, hitting a woman in the head. The metal plate flew off the train as a result of a broken screw, but no evidence was found to indicate the park had violated any rules or regulations.
The woman was waiting to ride the Top Thrill Dragster roller coasting ride when she was struck by the metal object, causing her to scream in pain. She was quickly rescued by Sandusky emergency workers and was taken to the hospital. She was treated and transferred to a trauma center.
Since the accident, the Top Thrill Dragster has been closed. The reason for the closure is safety concerns. It has been closed for months. In addition to that, there is a large construction project underway at the park that could prevent the roller coaster from running.
The metal L-shaped bracket attached to the back of the train is supposed to hover over a series of sensors. During the descent, the bracket came in contact with the track, causing the train to lose control and fly off. The woman on the roller coaster was taken to the hospital, where she received treatment.
Following the accident, Cedar Point has temporarily shut down the Top Thrill Dragster roller coasters for the rest of the season. Although the Park is not legally responsible for the incident, they have taken action to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
