Cell phone cameras were rolling as an Ohio State Fair roller coaster malfunctioned, causing a horrific and deadly accident.
So far, one death and seven injuries have been reported after a piece of the Fire Ball ride broke off its hinges. This led to multiple people being forcefully ejected from their seats and crashing to the ground.
Officials informed the public that the fair will be open Thursday, but no rides will be operating until they’re deemed safe.
The exact cause of the accident is still unknown, but it’s under investigation.
