Daytona Beach police said in a report that the first of the roller coaster’s three cars slid off the tracks until it was hanging off the side of the ride. The middle car also went off the tracks while the third remained stationary.
Officials found at least two people on the ground after the derailment. One of the victims who fell was in the front car, according to a report.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services released a statement Friday saying the ride had been inspected Thursday.
“First and foremost, we’re concerned about the individuals who were injured last night. Their well-being and recovery is of the utmost importance,” the statement said.
“Just yesterday, department inspectors conducted a thorough inspection of the ride, and it was found in compliance with state law. We have launched an investigation to determine the cause of the accident, and anyone who should be held accountable will be held accountable.”
