COLUM­BUS, Ohio (AP) — Crews have be­gun dis­man­tling the thrill ride in­volved in a deadly ac­ci­dent at the Ohio State Fair. WBNS-10TV re­ports the re­moval of the Fire Ball ride at the state fair­grounds be­gan with a fi­nal in­spec­tion Satur­day.

A State High­way Pa­trol in­ves­ti­ga­tion found the ride op­er­a­tors were not to blame. Dutch man­u­fac­turer KMG said the cause was ex­ces­sive cor­ro­sion of a sup­port beam. The ac­ci­dent re­sulted in the shut­down of sim­i­lar rides world­wide.
