“Chairs and sand were blowing everywhere, then when I looked up, the stage just kind of swayed back and forth, then came crashing down in to the crowd.” Indiana State Fair attendee
Around 8:55pm Saturday, at least 43 people were injured and four people died as a result of the Grand Stand Stage collapsing at the Indiana State Fair. A wind gust estimated between 60 and 70 miles per hour blew through the infield of the Indiana State Fairgrounds just minutes before Sugarland was scheduled to take the stage. Everyone at Naptown Buzz is praying for those in attendance at the fair and their families and is very thankful for the Hoosiers that helped other Hoosiers.
