Fifteen people were injured after a tram crashed at Universal Studios Hollywood over the weekend.

On Saturday, April 20, authorities responded to a crash involving a studio tour tram at the California-based theme park after 9:00 p.m. local time, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LAFD) said in a statement on X (formerly Twitter).

Rescue crews found 15 people injured at the scene, the LAFD said. One individual was found with critical injuries, while the others sustained minor injuries, KTLA and NBC Los Angeles reported. All involved were transported to a local hospital for treatment after the incident, per the LAFD.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) confirmed substance abuse was not a factor in the crash. An initial report from the organization said that a "last car of the tram collided with a metal guardrail on the right side of the roadway, causing it to tilt and eject multiple people."

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, the CHP said.
