SIX FLAGS OVER TEXAS SUES GERSTLAUER

Six Flags over Texas has sued Gerstlauer, the manufacturer of the trains on New Texas Giant, in connection with the accident in which a woman fell from the coaster to her death last summer.  Six Flags claims that the train involved in the fatal accident was a “defective product that was unreasonably dangerous in design, manufacture, distribution and promotion."  The lawyer representing Gerstlauer claims that Six Flags failed to follow proper safety procedures and that the coaster “was built according to the specific design specifications and was reviewed, tested and approved by Six Flags.”  Of course, the family of the unfortunate victim filed a lawsuit against Six Flags.  What do you think?  Photograph by Brandon Wade, special to the Arlington Star-Telegram.
