The accident occurred just before 9:30 p.m., involving a tram that was navigating a turn when the last car collided with a metal guardrail. The crash led to the tram tilting, ejecting multiple passengers onto the roadway.

According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, one person was critically injured, and the other passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries. Emergency responders quickly transported the injured to local hospitals for medical evaluation and treatment.

The California Highway Patrol is heading the investigation into the cause of the accident, with initial reports suggesting a potential issue with the brakes. 

However, authorities have not yet confirmed this, and alcohol and drugs were not considered factors in the crash.

Universal Studios has pledged support for the affected guests and is working to understand the circumstances that led to the accident.

This unfortunate event may impact the park’s plans for its 60th anniversary celebration.
