Company to Inspect Coaster Where Woman Died

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- A German roller coaster maker is sending officials to a North Texas amusement park to inspect a ride after a woman fell to her death.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Gerstlauer Amusement Rides in Munsterhausen, Germany, will investigate what led to Friday's accident at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.

Witnesses said the woman expressed concern about the coaster's safety bar not completely engaging as the ride was starting.

But a project manager for Gerstlauer, Tobias Lindnar, says the company has never had problems with car safety bars on any of the roughly 50 roller coasters it's built around the world over the past 30 years.

Park spokeswoman Sharon Parker says the victim died after falling from the 14-story Texas Giant roller coaster, but she wouldn't give specifics.
