Universal Studios Hollywood tram crash injures 15

Fifteen people have been injured and taken to hospital after a tram crashed at Universal Studios Hollywood on Saturday night local time.

Los Angeles County Fire said on social media that its units were dispatched to the theme park shortly after 9pm local time.

The patients were being treated with minor injuries, it added.

It is not yet clear if operations at the theme park were affected, or what led to the crash.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.

Universal Studios Hollywood is based in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles County, California.

It started out as a movie studio in 1915, with a theme park being added in 1964.

Key attractions include The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and a studio tour ride taking riders on a behind the scenes trip of some of Hollywood’s most memorable films and television shows.

It is one of several Universal Studios, with others including Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Singapore.

Representatives for Universal Studios have been contacted for comment.
