 BUENA PARK (AP) — A theme park spokeswoman says 10 people who suffered minor injuries in a rollercoaster accident at Knott’s Berry Farm have been released from the hospital.

Jennifer Blazey also said Friday that state inspectors, as well as the manufacturer of the Pony Express ride, will visit next week to try to determine what went wrong late Thursday.

Two rollercoaster trains collided in the station where park guests board the ride when a train leaving the station didn’t make it over the first hill and rolled back into another train.

One person who was getting into a waiting train and nine people on the train that rolled back were injured.
