New Cedar Point roller coaster reopens after minor collision


SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — Cedar Point’s newest roller coaster that shut down on opening day from a minor collision is back up and running again.

A spokesman for the amusement park in Sandusky says a train on the new Steel Vengeance coaster bumped into the back of a parked train while coming back into the station Saturday.

Four people on the ride asked to see the park’s first-aid team, but no significant injuries were reported. The riders returned to the park later.

The ride was closed Saturday afternoon, but reopened later that night.
