ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - A Six Flags worker was killed in a car accident that happened on an employee-only access road, according to theme park representatives.

The incident happened Sunday night.

Andrea Crook, 43, was reportedly thrown from the back of a van as it made a left turn on a road in the park. Crook received “serious head injuries,” according to police. She was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where she later died.

On Tuesday, OSHA representatives said an investigation into the incident is underway. OSHA representatives said no further information could be released.

Crook’s husband told Atlanta News First that she leaves behind three daughters. He did not want to speak on camera.

“Our hearts and our thoughts are extended to the family of the employee as well as all those impacted by this tragic automobile accident,” Dave Zellner, Six Flags Over Georgia president, said in a statement.

Theme park representatives said support will be provided to those affected.

Cobb County Police say that multiple adults and two juveniles, all employees of Six Flags, were inside the van at the time of the incident.

“The park will continue to provide full support and assistance to the Cobb County police as they investigate the accident,” a statement from the theme park said.
