BREAKING: Cause Released on Fatal Ohio Fair Incident

Ride manufacturer says 'excessive corrosion' led to deadly accident at Ohio State Fair

Excessive corrosion on a support beam caused a "catastrophic failure" of a thrill ride at the Ohio State Fair that killed an 18-year-old man and injured seven others, the ride's Dutch manufacturer said in a statement posted Sunday on Facebook. So what exactly caused this tragic situation??

"Commissioner Berry, as we've said before, if a ride has passed inspection by our inspectors in our department, she would feel comfortable putting her grandchildren on that ride", said Jason Tyson, a spokesman for the Labor Department. Kroon also shared that the company has vowed to "develop an inspection protocol" in order to prevent future tragedies.

The company said it conducted an investigation into the incident, which included a visit to the scene and a review of video footage of the incident.

CNN reported that the Afterberner ride was inspected several times before it broke apart in mid-use.

'Dukes of Hazzard' star arrested in Waltham on indecent assault, drug charges
The City of Waltham Police Department was unable to comment on Wopat's arrest when reached by the Daily News. A once-over of the vehicle uncovered a baggie of cocaine, which resulted in a possession charge.

The company that made an amusement park ride called "Fireball" now knows why it malfunctioned at the Ohio State Fair last month.

KMG ordered all similar rides around the world shut down following the incident. The Associated Press reports that Jarrell, a Columbus native, was enrolled for basic training in the summer of 2018. His family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

Four others remained hospitalized last week, including an 18-year-old woman in a coma, and Jarrell's 18-year-old girlfriend. The Great Allentown Fair once featured a smaller version, but it is no longer in the fair's ride package, a state official said.
