Scores injured in Legoland coaster crash

More than 30 people have been injured after a rollercoaster crashed at a German amusement park.

Two trains smashed into each other after one braked suddenly at the Legoland park in Guenzburg, north west of Munich in Bavaria, reported The Sun.

Police say 34 people have been injured, suffering cuts and bruises.

Among those two people were severely injured and were rushed to hospital by helicopter – one with leg injuries and the other with shoulder pain.

The “Feuerdrache” – or Fire Dragon – rollercoaster speeds around the park at 29km per hour.

The theme park is owned by Merlin Entertainments which also operates the Legoland Discovery Centre in Melbourne as well as the Sydney Tower Eye, Wild Life Sydney Zoo and the Illawarra and Otway Fly attractions.

Last week, a woman died in another roller coaster accident in an amusement park in Klotten in southwest Germany.

The 57-year-old woman fell out of the roller coaster as it was moving and died of her injuries.

The cause for the accident has not been identified yet.
