First Part Of The Kentucky Kingdom Accident Investigation is Complete.

The first part of the investigation into a horrific accident at Six Flags is now finished. Officials tried to figure out why a cable snapped on the "Superman Tower of Power" ride Thursday causing it to sever a 13-year-old girl's feet.

They're about to begin a new phase but wouldn't say exactly what that would be. There's still no word on the girl's condition.
