The Monorail at the California State Fair will hopefully re-open Thursday afternoon.

Representatives from California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health conducted a review of the train car involved in Wednesday’s incident.

A monorail train became stuck along the tracks with more than 30 people onboard. Emergency crews helped passengers to the ground, and reportedly no one was hurt.

The ride remained closed Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The fair has not given an exact time of reopening the monorail, but said it will be operational Thursday afternoon.

The report from Cal/OSHA is not available at this time.
