SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) – Cedar Point amusement park says a safety inspection has found no major problems with a roller coaster that struck and killed a man who entered a restricted area to look for a lost cellphone.
Investigators say James Young had just finished riding the Raptor Thursday and jumped over a fence to retrieve a cell phone he dropped during the 57 mile per hour ride.
Sandusky police say Young was hit by the ride or someone on it. No one else was hurt.
Cedar Point released a statement via social media that said:
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time.”
