Two of the injured were airlifted to local hospitals while a third was taken by ambulance. Others were treated at the scene. The BBC has more details.
In a rather ironic accident the Runaway Mine Train literally ran away, as the some cars in the train seperated from the rest. The lead cars rolled back and collided with the remaining cars.
The ride remains closed pending investigation.
