Roller Coaster Stalls At Six Flags

Stalled Roller CoasterRoller coaster riders at Six Flags America were stalled for about two hours when a malfunction led to an automatic safety shutdown.

Park spokeswoman Karin Korpowski says the ride, called Two-Face: The Flip Side, came to a stop about 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the top of a ramp. She says when park workers restarted the ride, a hydraulic line leaked, spilling fluid on riders.

Prince George's County fire department spokesman Mark Brady says the ride came to a sudden halt when the cars were brought down from the ramp. He says two people complaining of back and neck injuries were taken to the hospital to be evaluated.

Korpowski says she could not speculate on what caused the ride to shut down but that the incident will be investigated.
