Three children were injured on a carnival ride in Council Bluffs' Bayliss Park Friday night.

Police say a 5-year-old boy, his 4-year-old brother and their 8-year-old friend were on the Monster Truck Ride. They were belted in, but for some reason the car they were in flipped upside down as it was going up an incline and struck the car in front of them. The car did come loose from its hoist.

The 5-year-old was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center with head injuries and is listed in stable condition. The other two children were treated and released from the hospital.

A representative from the State of Iowa Department of Elevator and Amusement Park Rides will investigate the incident. The carnival is part of the Celebrate CB Week festivities.
