Denver Issues Report in Coors Field Elevator Mishap: Denver's chief elevator inspector has found that mechanical failure, combined with a missing safety switch, was the cause of the elevator accident at Coors Field in July, which injured 30 people.

As is the nature of things today, you can probably expect a lawsuit to be filed against the elevator company, the city, the ballpark and the Rockies. The elevator company, Kone Inc., issued a statement disagreeing with the report, and the Rockies were quick to point out that the missing safety switch was "manufactured, installed and maintained by Kone."
