Accident on S&S Launched Coaster at Happy Valley Shenzen

I just watched a video from a reputable source on youtube.

In a nutshell, an alarm in the control system was triggered during the launch. The brake fins on the launch track came up, as they were supposed to during an alarm. The last brake fin on the launch track was misaligned, due to poor maintenance and fatigued bolts. The train struck the brake fin on the way forward, which caused it to not have enough speed to clear the hill. The train rolled back and struck the newly damaged and even more misaligned brake fin. This caused the magnets on the train to become damaged. The train rolled back and hit an empty train (I think) in the station, forcing the empty train out of the station.

No deaths were reported, but there were multiple serious injuries.
