News reports out of the greater Los Angeles area said that the accident took place at about 8:00 Thursday evening.

Commentary:

Several reports I’ve studied concerning this accident implied that the ride was a new attraction, which makes me wonder if it had gone through all the proper testing and certifications required to operate. We just saw one case where people were seriously hurt at a local carnival/fair where the permit to operate didn’t start until the day after the accident happened, which means, the place was operating without the proper license. Has anybody checked to see if this was a similar situation? Had all the employees of the fair been properly trained on what to do if something went wrong? There are so many questions left unanswered by the news report, it leads me to believe that nobody has asked the right ones. This is one situation that really needs a lot of care and detective work to get loved ones the answers they deserve at a time like this.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
