PARIS (AP) — French authorities say one man has been killed and another person has been seriously wounded in a fairground ride accident in a small town north of Lyon.

The Rhone prefecture said three other people were slightly injured after the ride collapsed Saturday afternoon in Neuville-sur-Saone. The prefecture wouldn't provide details on the identities or the ages of the victims.

The ride was composed of three rotating axis with baskets carrying people in pairs. Laurent Buffard, deputy mayor of Neuville-sur-Saone, told BFM television that one of the axis somehow hit the ground.

An investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the accident.
