Ohio won’t investigate Cedar Point ride accident

– Ohio’s amusement ride inspectors won’t be conducting an official investigation into an accident that injured two people when a cable snapped on a swing ride at Cedar Point.

That’s because the state investigates accidents only when someone is admitted to a hospital or stays overnight.

Cedar Point says the Skyhawk ride will remain closed until the park’s investigation into the cause is completed. Two people were hurt Saturday night when a cable disconnected on the ride that swings up to 125 feet in the air.

A Department of Agriculture spokeswoman says state ride inspectors will be at the park in Sandusky later this week to meet with Cedar Point officials and the ride’s manufacturer.

The inspectors also will need to sign off on the ride before it can reopen.
