Roller Coaster derails injuring 6. I’ve always been afraid to ride on roller coasters for this very reason. A roller coaster derailed in Daytona Beach yesterday causing 2 people to fall about 34 feet and injuring 6 others. The fire department arrived only to find the Sand Blaster roller coaster dangling from it’s track and two people lying on the ground injured. The 2 injured were rushed to hospital while the crews began rescuing people trapped in their cars. You know the investigation has already begun.
