Investigation into Ninja derailment continues, first lawsuit filed

Posted Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:07 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Park officials and witnesses described seeing a large branch fall across the tracks at about 6 p.m. Monday, causing the partial derailment, but a spokesman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Peter Melton, said an entire tree -- estimated at 40 feet high -- had actually fallen.

Two Six Flags Magic Mountain visitors who were riding the Ninja roller coaster when it struck a downed tree Monday sued the park, seeking unspecified damages.

From the LA Times: Investigation continues, lawsuit filed.

I heard the tree is being taken out of the ICU, and is making a steady recovery. The Tree's lawyers refused to comment on the current situation.

I think we should leaf this alone. The lawyer for the tree is probably all bark and no bite anyway.

It looks like Ninja got a fresh whiff of a new pine air freshener.

But hey, I'm not Birch-ing

Most of the victims are suffering from severe splinter trauma, growing pains, and the pain is reportedly branching out all over the body.

It's leave, you idiot! "Make like a tree, and leave." You sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong.

No trees were harmed in the sending of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

If the tree dies, he dies. Probably better anyways. Who can live with so many trees? They suck up all the oxygen.
