A roller coaster derailed and struck a tree at Six Flags Magic Mountain yesterday evening, leaving four people injured and over 20 stranded some 20 feet off the ground.
KTLA reports that a branch fell onto the track of the "Ninja" ride, interrupting its movement. The LAFD was summoned to free the riders, who were brought down around 8 p.m. after being stuck for close to an hour. KTLA adds that two of the injured were hospitalized as a safety precaution.
A statement posted on Six Flags' website states that the Ninja has been shut down for the moment.
