Victims of Alton Towers Smiler accident speak out

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

One of the victims of the horrific Alton Towers rollercoaster crash has spoken for the first time. Joe was on the front row of The Smiler with his girlfriend Leah Washington when it smashed into another carriage and injured both of them. Next to them were a couple, aged 19 and 27, who also suffered serious leg injuries when carriages collided on The Smiler ride at the Staffordshire park.

The ride often had a queue in excess of two hours when it ran four trains. Just saying...

So hitch all 5 trains together into one big train that can carry 80 people... Capacity and blocking problems solved! 😜

But then again, what do I know?
