Roller Coaster Trains Crash in Sweden

Gothenburg, Sweden -- Twenty one people were injured Saturday when two trains on a roller coaster collided. The accident happened on the Lisbergbanan roller coaster at Sweden's Liseberg amusement park in Gothenburg.

According to news reports, the chain that pulls the trains up the lift hill failed causing a train to roll backwards into the station where it hit another that was unloading riders. Six of the injured were children, but fortunately none of the injuries were serious.
