That's because the state investigates accidents only when someone is admitted to a hospital or stays overnight.

Cedar Point says the Skyhawk ride will remain closed until the park's investigation into the cause is completed. Two people were hurt Saturday night when a cable disconnected on the ride that swings up to 125 feet in the air.

The inspectors also will need to sign off on the ride before it can reopen.
