Louisville Company to Test Wire Cables On Amusement Park Ride

A Louisville company will conduct testing on wire cables that snapped and severed the feet of a teen on an amusement park ride in June.

Jefferson Circuit Judge Barry Willet ruled Dec. 21 that IMR Metallurgial Services will conduct tests on the cables.

The company will pick one of two accredited labs in Ohio to test the tensile strength of the cable.

The ruling comes in the case of 14-year-old Kaitlyn Lasitter and her family, who are suing Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom over the June 21 accident on the Superman Tower of Power.
