Human error caused crash

24 Nov, 2015

The theme park says the Smiler Roller coaster crash that seriously injured five people, and resulted in two women having their legs amputated was caused by human error. Staff misunderstood a shutdown message and wrongly restarted the ride. The ride, which has been closed since the crash, will reopen next year with improved safety measures.
