DALLAS- A woman died on Friday following an accident on a roller coaster at the Six Flags Over Texas amusement park in Arlington, the park operator said.

The unidentified woman was riding the Texas Giant roller coaster ride at the park in Arlington, about 20 miles (32 km) west of Dallas, when the accident occurred, Six Flags said in a statement.

"Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation," Six Flags spokeswoman Sharon Parker said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time," she added.

Parker gave no further details of the accident.
