A worker is recovering from a broken hand and staples in his head after being struck by a newly built roller coaster during testing at a Pennsylvania amusement park.
A Knoebels Amusement Resort spokeswoman said the company employee was struck by the Impulse roller coaster Thursday morning.
Public relations manager Stacy Ososkie says the man was beside the track when he was hit by a passing car. She says family members report a CT scan did not show signs of more serious injuries.
The 99-foot-high coaster is the largest project in the park's history.
