On Friday, in North Texas A woman died in an accident while riding the Texas Giant roller coaster.

The accident happened on Friday at 6:30 p.m. in Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. Witnesses told local media outlets that the woman fell from the ride, which is billed as the tallest steel-hybrid roller coaster in the world.

Arlington Fire Department investigators have not confirmed if the restraint came loose, according to the report. Investigators will try to determine Saturday if the woman was not properly secured by staff, as some witnesses accounts contend.

Six Flags expressed sadness over the death and said it was temporarily closing the section of the park around the accident site. It didn’t say how long the area would be closed.

The Texas Giant reaches 14 stories high and has a drop of 79 degrees and a bank of 95 degrees. It can carry up to 24 riders. The ride first opened in 1990 as an all-wooden coaster but underwent a $10 million renovation in 2010 to install steel-hybrid rails before reopening in 2011.

Six Flags Over Texas opened in 1961 as the first amusement park in the Six Flags system. It is 17 miles west of downtown Dallas.
