3 Injured in Knott's Stagecoach Accident

Three people were hospitalized after the Knott's Berry Farm stagecoach lost a wheel and flipped.

In what has to be Orange County’s first stagecoach accident in a long while, three people were injured Sunday when the iconic Knott’s Berry Farm stagecoach lost a wheel and flipped.

As reported by the Los Angeles Times, the stagecoach flipped, sending 14 passengers tumbling.

According to the paper, amusement park officials indefinitely closed the ride, noting, “Three guests were transported to a local hospital for minor injuries. The ride will be closed until further notice. Guest safety is Knott’s number one priority.”

I've seen that movie before. Glad all injuries were minor.

Something is bound to happen!! Not everything lasts forever! I can't remember had there been a roller coaster ride where there was a fatality? :(

Susan, If you're talking about Knott's, there was a rumor going around that a couple of people died in an accident on the Xcelerator ride. Two people were injured, but nobody died.
