A worker at the Sonoma-Marin Fair suffered a severed leg when he stepped in front of a moving rolling coaster Wednesday afternoon at the fairgrounds in Petaluma.

The man opened a safety gate and stepped onto the track of the roller coaster called the Wacky Worm at 2:20 p.m. - less than 90 minutes into the opening day of the fair, said Vicki DeArmon, the fair's marketing director.

The man, who was in his 20s and was not the operator of the ride, was hospitalized, and his condition was unknown.

A picture of the roller coaster can be seen below:

I like how the only one on the train is an adult man.

Sometimes you gotta sacrifice a little bit of yourself to get the job done.

Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

Either that or skydiving without a parachute into an electrified pool filled with jellyfish.

Killed while having sex with a pornstar(or wife or whatever) on a extrem thrilling rollercoaster with 1969 Corvette Stingray Coupe in black with sidepipes and a 427 Hemi looking trains,after having first class massage and a first class dinner and long and happy life would be perfect IMO...

Nice double post.

@ you living to 100: No, at the rate you're going you won't make it to 20. Isn't that the average age for midgets?

@ nothing being impossible: You losing your virginity

@ Knowing the slogan of Toyota: they have a bunch of slogans, the most well known being "buy our cars".

Sorry. I had to let off steam...

The same thing happened on one of my local Wisdom coasters (rexo coaster), but he was decapitated.
