Knott's Berry Farm Stagecoach Flips, Injuring 3 Riders

Three people were hospitalized after a stagecoach ride at Knott's Berry Farm lost a wheel and flipped Sunday afternoon.

But the injuries were minor, according to officials at the Buena Park theme park, whose ride was carrying 14 passengers at the time.

"The ride will be closed until further notice," reads a statement from Knott's. "Guest safety is Knott's number one priority."

It was the left rear wheel that detached before the coach flipped, officials added.
