At Six Flags Magic Mountain, in Los Angeles, things did not go as planned on Monday, July 7th, 2014. While most patrons know they are in for a thrill ride they do not expect to be severely injured on a roller coaster. The Ninja Roller Coaster at Magic Mountain is claimed to be a thrill ride that is “the black belt of roller coasters whips you into submission”. Unfortunately, four tourists were whipped into submission in a way that Six Flags never desired.
The Ninja roller coaster is situation in and around several trees at Magic Mountain. One of these tree branches fell on the track of the roller coaster. One of the cars was dislodge because of the tree branch which ended up hurting four passengers. Fortunately, these passengers only sustained minor injuries. At least two of the four injured were taken to the hospital as a precaution. When visiting the Six Flags Magic Mountain website the Ninja thrill ride is mentioned as “temporarily closed”. At this point, we do not know when the roller coaster will be reopened.
Over the last few weeks there have been a large number of injury causing accidents in the count of Los Angeles. Our Los Angeles Car Accidents resource highlights most of these unfortunate events.

During the morning rush hour it is not uncommon to see one accident reported every single minute.
As these accidents continue to mount bloggers are hitting the Internet to ask questions. There are times in which traffic is not as severe but those living in Los Angeles realize it is nearly impossible to avoid all of the traffic. Here is an interesting blog post about the Los Angeles traffic on July 4th weekend.
