Santa Clara's Great America Fined For Worker's Injury

California's Great America theme park in Santa Clara has been cited $70,200 for its role in creating a dangerous environment which led to a worker suffering serious personal injuries.  The amusement park accident occurred this past summer.  The ride mechanic, a 66-year-old man, was working at the Flight Deck Ride when he was struck by a train as he was retrieving a cell phone from a restricted area.   According to the investigation the amusement park's owner - Cedar Fair Southwest - failed to have proper safety measures in place.  This included the failure to ensure proper safety protocols existed to make sure that the roller coaster was not in operation when workers retrieved lost articles, and also to make sure that workers were trained to shut down the rides.
