Jury awards $3.6 million in Six Flags Ohio projectile accident

Posted | Contributed by Gemini

A Wisconsin woman who suffered a fractured skull in 2000 when she was hit by something -- probably a rock -- while riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Ohio was awarded $3.6 million Friday. Six Flags originally offered to settle for $200,000. Jurors determined that the company was negligent because it knew people had thrown rocks at the ride before the accident occurred but did not protect riders. Six Flags sold the park in 2004 to Cedar Fair.
