On 21 June 2001, 20-year old Gemma Savage died following an accident the previous day when two cars collided. Police decided not to prosecute a maintenance worker who claimed he had never seen the ride's manual, and had only had an hour's training. Faulty wiring also caused a malfunction on the ride.
In October 2004, Deputy Coroner John Sleightholme at Skipton Magistrates' Court ruled death by misadventure. Lightwater Valley's owners and electrician Eric Butters admitted breaching health and safety laws at Leeds Crown Court on 14 November 2006. Lightwater Valley Attractions Ltd. was charged with failing to ensure the health and safety of riders, Butters was charged with failing to ensure safety through his work. Both pleaded guilty. The ride's manufacturer, Reverchon Industries SA (France), was convicted of two charges of failing to ensure the ride's safe design and construction.
