NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Department of Agriculture says it will investigate after two children received minor injuries on a low-speed ride at a community festival outside of Cleveland.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/2wSZOHE ) a car left the ride’s tracks Friday night at the North Ridgeville Corn Festival 24 miles (39 kilometers) southwest of Cleveland.

North Ridgeville fire officials say the children were examined at the scene and released to their parents.

Five passengers were on the ride when the car went off the tracks

The Agriculture Department’s Amusement Ride Safety division will investigate.

A man was killed and seven people were hurt, some seriously, when a swinging and spinning thrill ride called the Fire Ball broke apart last month at the Ohio State Fair.
