Crews have begun dismantling the thrill ride involved in a deadly accident at the Ohio State Fair. The removal of the Fire Ball ride at the state fairgrounds began with a final inspection Saturday.

The Dutch manufacturer of the thrill ride that broke apart and killed an 18-year-old man at the Ohio State Fair says excessive corrosion on a support beam led to a "catastrophic failure."

A co-owner of the company providing rides at the Ohio State Fair thinks a mechanical failure caused a thrill ride to break apart Wednesday night, killing an 18-year-old man.

State investigators are continuing to examine the Ohio State Fair ride that broke apart on Opening Day, killing one person and leaving several others seriously injured.

One person was killed and seven others injured when an "aggressive thrill" ride at the Ohio State Fair broke apart last night.

A new study by researchers at a local hospital shows that in the summer, 20 kids per day are treated in emergency rooms for injuries related to amusement park rides.
