The passengers were reportedly thrown from a ride when it malfunctioned.

The incident took place in Castle Park in Riverside, CA, Saturday afternoon. There was apparently a fault on the Log Ride, in which three people were injured. There are conflicting reports about whether all three passengers were thrown from the ride or if it was just one.

The accident happened when one of the ride and the water pump is apparently malfunctioned, Fox 11 reports. The pump was responsible for the filling of one of the ride splash zones. While the incident is still under investigation, it is of the opinion that the failure caused the ride to travel faster than the normal speed.
