State inspectors returned to Six Flags Magic Mountain Wednesday as they continued their assessment of the Ninja roller coaster ride derailed Monday by a falling tree.

There are no conclusions as yet,” Cal/OSHA spokesman Peter Melton said Wednesday.

Park officials, meanwhile, have complied with the state agency’s request that they bring in a tree expert to look at the 30- to 40-foot-tall tree that fell over, hitting the first car of the Ninja ride and derailing it.

Two young men sitting in the front car of the ride suffered minor injuries during the accident, Los Angeles County Fire Department Inspector Rick Flores said at the scene Monday.

Ninja will remain closed until Cal/OSHA gives it the green light to reopen.
