Excessive corrosion of the Fire Ball ride has been cited as the cause of the accident that killed one teen and injured seven others at the Ohio State Fair last month. So what exactly caused this tragic situation??

The "excessive corrosion" was discovered inside the Fire Ball's gondola support beam during a "metallurgical inspection" of the ride, Kroon said.

He added, "This finally led to the catastrophic failure of the ride during operation". Kroon also shared that the company has vowed to "develop an inspection protocol" in order to prevent future tragedies.

Tyler Jarrell, 18, was thrown into the air and died on impact 50 feet away.

CNN reported that the Afterberner ride was inspected several times before it broke apart in mid-use. FOX8 Cleveland reports that four others remain hospitalized, including Jerrell's girlfriend, Keziah Lewis, 18.

He fired a respectable 4-over-par 74, picking up birdies on a pair of Par-5s and saving par with numerous long putts. There was lots of talk that he was stealing a spot from a deserving pro, and that he would be lucky to break "85".

Jarrell had recently enlisted in the U.S. Marines and was scheduled to begin basic training next year. Sunday was the fair's last day.

Ohio Department of Agriculture records showed passing marks on inspections for the Fire Ball on about three dozen items, including possible cracks, brakes, proper assembly and installation.

Similar rides were shut down across the country following the deadly accident.

A co-owner of the company that provides rides at the fair in Columbus has said he's certain the ride fell apart because of a mechanical problem.

The family of the man who was killed is pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in connection with the accident.
