It is unclear how old she is or what her current condition is. While deaths and serious injuries are uncommon at Cedar Point, this was not the first time that an accident on the Top Thrill Dragster ended in injury. In July 2004, a day of fun ended abruptly for a group of four friends who were pelted by pieces of metal from the coaster's launch cable. One rider had a piece of metal pierce his ear. Another had a piece of metal protruding from his arm, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. Then in August 2016, two riders were treated for minor injuries when the launch able detatched from the ride. The Top Thrill Dragster was closed the following day while the park investigated the incident.
