A rollback on the King Pine quad chairlift resulted in seven injuries late Saturday morning at Sugarloaf, according to the Bangor Daily News. Three were hospitalized. Some 204 people were evacuated from the lift in the following two hours.

Located on the eastern side of the ski area, the King Pine was installed new in 1988 by Borvig.

The accident comes less than 5 years after the Spillway East, also a Borvig, deroped, resulting in multiple injuries.

A state lift investigator was on site Saturday. The lift remains closed.
