A rollercoaster at Six Flags St. Louis failed to complete its course causing four people to suffer minor injuries on Friday morning. The accident happened on the Boomerang at around 11:30 a.m. when the ride came to an abrupt and unexpected stop, jolting riders. All individuals onboard were able to exit the ride at its’ midpoint. Those injured were taken to a nearby medical center for evaluation. The Boomerang travels at approximately 50 mph, reaches heights of 125 feet and stretches 1,650 feet. It was opened at the amusement park during the summer of 2013 and officials are working to determine the cause of the incident. The coaster will remain closed until it is running properly.
Premises liability laws protect the rights of individuals who have suffered injuries, illnesses, or death on another person’s property. Slip and fall accidents, dog bites, food poisoning, drownings, and nearly all other types of accidents involving negligence are covered under premises liability. All companies, private property owners, and managers of certain facilities are required to maintain their premises to prevent any accidents from occurring. Suffering damages in an unfortunate accident is devastating and in order to hold the parties accountable for their negligence, you must contact an experienced St. Louis premises liability attorney.
