One person was killed and several others were seriously hurt after a ride malfunction at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus Wednesday, officials said.

Jarrell was going into his senior year at Franklin Heights High School.

A company called Introtech has been hired to investigate and reconstruct the accident and determine why it happened. At least two are listed in critical condition, according to TIME.

The director of Arapahoe County Open Spaces, Shannon Carter, told KMGH-TV that the Freak Out ride was dismantled early Friday "out of an abundance of caution and out of respect for the victims" in Ohio. Officials say the ride had been inspected a few times prior to the crash. Keziah Lewis, a University of Cincinnati student, doesn't remember the accident and has pelvis, ankle and rib injuries, Clarissa Williams said.

The thrill ride that left one dead and seven injured at the Ohio State Fair on Wednesday has been banned from the upcoming Kentucky and IN state fairs.

The midway said they have not had an issue with the Fire Ball since they first got it in 2001.

In addition, local media in Canada reported officials closed the Fireball ride at an annual fair in Edmonton, Alberta, until further notice.

Their staff will work in partnership with independent ride inspection professionals as well as the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services to inspect each ride and attraction, the release said.

The company description of the ride says it swings riders 40 feet above the midway while spinning them at 13 revolutions per minute.

A tweet from the Ohio State Fair says "Inspectors making good progress".

"After seeing that I don't like none of these rides", said Casey Hollar of Goshen.

The ride involved in the fatality was made in 1998 by KMG, a Danish company. Forty-three of the rides, also known as the Afterburner, including 11 in the USA are in use around the world, according to KMG.

The Ohio State Fair is one of the biggest state fairs in the U.S. It drew 900,000 people a year ago.
