OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Five people, two of them from Pennsylvania, were injured Sunday when an amusement park ride malfunctioned along the Jersey shore, according to police.

According to the Ocean City police department, the five people received minor injuries when riding the "Log Flume" ride at Gillian's Wonderland Pier on the Boardwalk.

The victims were identified as Kimberly Aceto, 40, of Barrington; Travis Lindenmoer, 27, of Lehighton, Pa.; and Danielle Summreil, 23, of Lehighton, Pa.

A 9-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl were also injured, but due to their age, their names are not being released.

The victims were taken to Shore Memorial Hospital.

There was no information on what happened to the ride.

The "Log Flume" will remain closed until the New Jersey State Department of Community Affairs, which oversees amusement parks, can figure out what caused the accident, police said.

Telephone calls left at the amusement park office were not immediately returned.
