Cedar Point coaster closed after accident injures 10


SANDUSKY, Ohio On the verge of the busy Memorial Day weekend, one of Cedar Point s roller coasters remains closed while officials investigate an accident from a week ago.

Late last Friday, one train on the WildCat didn t make it up a hill and then rolled backward, smacking into another train.

Cedar Point says nine people were treated for bruises and sprains at the amusement park s first aid station, and one was taken to a hospital to be looked at.

Park spokesman Bryan Edwards says the WildCat won t run again until the cause of the problem has been determined.

The state Department of Agriculture inspects amusement park rides. A spokeswoman there says inspectors suspect a problem with the ride s track.
