34 injured after roller coaster crashes at German amusement park

BERLIN (AP) — At least 34 people were injured, two of them seriously, when two roller coaster trains collided at an amusement park in southern Germany on Thursday, German media reported.

One roller coaster train braked hard and another crashed at Legoland Park in Genzburg, German news agency dpa reported. Three helicopters were deployed to the scene, and fire and rescue services were called in to help.

It wasn’t immediately obvious how the crash could occur. A spokesperson for the amusement park told dpa.

Last week, a woman died in another roller coaster accident at an amusement park in Klotten, southwestern Germany. A 57-year-old woman died of her injuries after falling off a roller coaster while she was running. The cause of the accident has not yet been determined.
