2 hurt in Ohio amusement park ride accident

– Two people have been hurt in an accident involving a ride at Cedar Point amusement park in northwest Ohio.

News outlets and the park say one person went to a hospital for evaluation late Saturday while the other was treated at the scene. The park indicates that a cable disconnected from the Skyhawk ride at about 10 p.m. EDT.
