Fed agency: 'Hi-Miler' rollercoaster poses no hazard
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The federal agency that monitors roller coaster safety has decided there's no evidence that the ride from which a man fell at this year's rodeo poses a current hazard.Brian Greenhouse died from his fall from the Hi-Miler on the last night of the rodeo in March. His family is suing the rodeo as well as the carnival ride company, Ray Cammack Shows, for wrongful death.
After a four-month investigation, we've obtained the Consumer Product Safety Commission's report on the ride. It's almost 800 pages long, revealing investigators found nothing that rose to what they consider a substantial hazard on the Hi-Miler at this point.
Greenhouse's family contends the ride did not properly restrain him.
