Three Children Hurt In Hersheypark Train Accident

Hershey, PA -- Three youngsters were hurt Tuesday, when the miniature train they were ridding in tipped over at Hersheypark.

The three children, two of whom were 4-years old, were treated at the Hershey Medical Center.

All three had minor injuries and were treated for cuts and bruises before being released. The remaining passengers were either not injured or treated at the scene.

According to park spokesman Garrett Gallia, the train was rounding a curve when the last car tipped over, causing three other cars to overturn.

The train ride will remain closed until the park conducts an inspection.
