A tram accident at Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles injured 15 people Saturday night, authorities and the company said.

Los Angeles County Fire Department units were dispatched to the theme park on Lankershim Boulevard shortly after 9pm.

The victims taken to area hospitals had minor injuries with one suffering moderate injuries, the department said.

Los Angeles County sheriff Lt Maria Aba told the LA Times that a four-car tram had crashed.

The last car of the tram struck a rail when it was travelling down a hill of a parking structure.

“There was some type of issue with the brakes,” Abal said. “We don’t exactly know what yet.”

The park’s tram can hold more than a hundred people, Abal said, but it was unclear how many were on board at the time of the incident.

A spokesperson for Universal Studios said: “There was a tram incident at the theme park tonight that resulted in multiple minor injuries, confirmed by the LA County Fire Dept.

“We are working to support our guests and understand the circumstances that led to the accident.”

The “World-Famous Studio Tour” is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year.

The tour thrills visitors taking in sets like the Bates Motel from Psycho, Jurassic Park, Back To The Future and Jaws.

It also simulates a flash flood, an 8.3 earthquake and a high-speed car chase featuring the cast from the Fast & Furious movie franchise.
