    Aerial view of the San Antonio Monorail. The attraction left one person dead and 48 injured during the 1968 fair. Investigators determined the derailment as a result of two loaded cars bumping into each other on a curve, in turn causing an 11-car derailment. The victim was Emilee Schmidt, a 65-year old woman from Missouri, who died after being pinned down by one of the carts.
