Ohio’s amusement-ride inspectors won’t be conducting an official investigation into an accident at Cedar Point that injured at least two people, but will have to give the OK for the swing ride to reopen.

The state only investigates accidents when someone is admitted to a hospital or stays overnight.

Two people were hurt Saturday night when a cable snapped on the Skyhawk ride that swings up to 125 feet in the air, said Cedar Point spokesman Bryan Edwards. One person was treated at the park and another was treated at a hospital, Edwards said.

Cedar Point has said the ride will remain closed until the park’s own investigation into the cause is completed.

State ride inspectors will be at the park in Sandusky later this week to meet with park officials and the ride’s manufacturer, said Brett Gates, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Agriculture, which oversees amusement rides in the state.
