Calling All Old-Timers: Is This Correct?

Without doing research, haven't there been others? Going back to my childhood memories, (1) wasn't there a fatality on some roller coaster in the 1970s. I can't recall the name of it*, but it was the first big and bad one and preceded the Shockwave by a few years; and (2) did someone get killed under the old "sombrero ride" (it looked like this)?  Maybe they were just injuries, but I could have sworn there were some deaths in the early days.
*Edit: Thanks to the comments. It was named Big Bend.
