Rollercoaster crash at Legoland park in Germany leaves at least 34 people injured

Two trains collided on track of ‘Fire Dragaon’ ride on Thursday in Bavarian town of Guenzburg

Two rollercoaster trains have crashed into each other at an amusement park in southern Germany, injuring at least 34 people, two of them severely.

One rollercoaster train braked heavily and another train collided with it at the Legoland park in the Bavarian town of Guenzburg, the German news agency dpa reported on Thursday.

Three helicopters were sent to the scene, and fire and rescue services were called in to help.

It was not immediately clear how the crash happened. It took place in the station of the Fire Dragon rollercoaster, an amusement park spokesperson told dpa.


Last week, a woman died in another rollercoaster accident in an amusement park in Klotten in southwest Germany. The 57-year-old was fatally injured when she fell out of the rollercoaster while it was moving. The cause of the accident has not yet been identified.
