Glenwood Springs, Colo. (AP) A woman is suing an amusement park claiming she suffered permanent injuries after colliding with another rider in an alpine coaster.

Linda Pappas alleges no one warned her someone was stopped in front of her in another car while she rode the “Canyon Flyer,” a ride similar to a roller coaster that allows people to control their speed as they slide on the tracks.

But officials at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park say the collision was Pappas' fault and that she failed to follow safety instructions.

Pappas says she injured her left shoulder, left foot and back during the ride in Glenwood Springs in 2006. She blames the collision and her injuries on the way the ride was built.

The owners of the park say they have had “Very Few” incidents in more than 300,000 rides on the alpine coaster since 2005.
