No criminal charges will be filed in Ohio State Fair ride malfunction

01 Septembre 2017

No charges will be brought in the case of the fatal ride accident at the Ohio State Fair.

Some of those injured were on the ride that collapsed, and others were struck by debris that came off the machine, said Ohio State Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. Paul Pride.

Investigators interviewed more than 80 witnesses, including people on the ride at the time of the wild mishap, which sent one of its passenger gondolas flying into the air, killing 18-year-old Tyler Jarrell and injuring seven others.

Prosecutor Ron O'Brien reviewed the case and concluded there was not enough evidence to proceed with a criminal case.

Officials say the ride will be stored at the Ohio State Fair and Exposition Center until it is released to Amusements of America.

The State Highway Patrol in OH led the investigation and says it interviewed over 80 witnesses, including people on the ride when it broke apart.

Troopers and third party experts completed nondestructive inspections of the ride, which includes measurements, mapping, scanning, and photography.

Representatives from the Department of Agriculture, Amusements of America, KMG, the Ohio State Fair, and Expo Center and the Consumer Products Safety Administration were included in the investigation.

Tyler Jarrell's family has retained attorneys and plans to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, they say.
