Authorities continued their investigation Sunday into why a roller coaster derailed at a Bronx carnival.

The Dragon Coaster ran off its tracks around 9:30 p.m. Saturday night at the Feast of St. Theresa Festival, on Westchester and St. Theresa Avenues near Pelham Bay Park.

The ride was full of children when it gave way. Police said the roller coaster stood no more than three to four feet off the ground.

Six kids and one adult were taken to the hospital and none of the injuries was considered serious and could be described as bumps and scratches.

All rides were shut down as a precaution.
