The Star-Telegram reports that Six Flags Over Texas did not follow the law "that requires parks to report injuries during the three-month period in which they occurred." The newspaper found over 30 lawsuits that the state was not told about. Texas park safety laws declare "annual inspections should be done by insurance companies because they have a financial interest, along with the parks, in keeping patrons safe." But some say that "allowing businesses to regulate themselves opens the door to problems, even if they have every reason to ensure patrons' safety." Sean Wood and Jennifer Autrey report more on the injury reporting law and amusement park safety records.
