Six Flags Over Georgia – Theme Park Accident

A Six Flags Over Georgia employee, Andrea Crook, died tragically while inside the theme park just one week ago. Following the heartbreaking news of this employee losing their life inside the theme park, Atlanta News First was on the scene.

According to the official report from Atlanta News First, the news team asked the woman who was killed not to reveal any photos of her, which was asked by her husband specifically. The Six Flags Over Georgia employee, Andrea Crook, a scare actor for the theme park, was mysteriously thrown out of a van as she and several other employees left the theme park last Sunday night.

Police confirmed that Crook was the passenger in a Ford Econoline van with several other employees. Investigators confirmed that Crook was “ejected” from the vehicle after it made a left uphill turn around a curb on Harbor Way, an employee access road inside the park.

At this moment, Crook was thrown out of the van and suffered severe head injuries but was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, where she unfortunately died of her wounds. Crook’s husband spoke to Atlanta News First and told the news outlet that she leaves behind three beautiful daughters.
