Several hurt in Disney park crash

Disneyland has just celebrated its 50th anniversary
At least 14 people have been injured in a crash between two rollercoaster cars at a Disney theme park in California.
Some of the injured were sent to local hospitals, but nobody is believed to be in a serious condition.

The causes of the accident, described as a "minor collision", are still unclear, a city spokesman said.

The most serious accident to have happened at Disneyland in recent years was a derailment that killed one person and hurt 10 others in September 2003.

Disney's California Adventure theme park, where the latest incident took place, is part of the Disneyland complex in Orange County, south-east of Los Angeles.

Some 18 ambulances and about 100 firefighters were immediately deployed to the scene as a precautionary measure.

"Whenever you have two cars like this come in contact with one another, you want to have as many resources on scene as possible," said John Nicoletti, an official in the city of Anaheim.

About 48 people were on board the trains at the time of the accident.

Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform.
