A Washington City, Utah woman injured when a panel fell from the ceiling of a St. George carousel is suing for more than $300,000 in damages. A lawsuit filed this week claims Linda Williamson suffered head, neck, eye and back injuries when two fiberglass panels fell July 15, 2011. Her attorney, Ronald Truman, told The Spectrum she can’t do the same tasks she could before, and her husband has picked up responsibilities. St. George purchased the refurbished carousel for $275,000 in an effort to make one of its parks more family-friendly. City officials say more than 1,000 people per day used the ride when it first opened.
