The families of children who were injured on the Tilt-A-Whirl at the Kitsap County Fair in 2018 are suing the owner of the amusement company that operated the ride at the fair’s carnival and its manufacturer.
The lawsuit filed in Kitsap County Superior Court names the owner of the Tilt-A-Whirl ride, Davis Amusement Cascadia Inc., and the manufacturer of the equipment, J&S Rides Inc., dba Larson International, the Kitsap Sun reported.
At about 1 p.m. on Aug. 28, 2018, a Tilt-A-Whirl car derailed and six children were injured, the lawsuit said. One car detached and slammed into a railing. It flipped over, landed on its back and collided with other cars, the lawsuit said.
Parents of children from three families seek compensation for injuries, infliction of emotional distress and damages, according to the suit.
