One six-year old was killed and 27 others injured were injured when a children’s train ride crashed at Spartanburg’s Cleveland Park. One of the families in which 4 of them were injured in the accident is filing a lawsuit against Spartanburg County, its park commission and the South Carolina Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, reports ABC News Charleston, SC.
The passengers ranged in age from 3 to 54 years old.
The driver of the children’s train told police he knew he was driving too fast prior to Saturday’s accident. State officials fired a train inspector who falsified a report saying the train was okay to operate.
