Four Dead and Dozens Hurt by State Fair Stage Collapse

The Indy Star is reporting that as many as a dozen people were injured tonight at the Indiana State Fair when part of the grandstand stage collapsed during winds associated with tonight's storms.

According to the report, medics were setting up a triage center and moving the injured to a tunnel below the track in the area.

The report also indicates that there may have been the need to dig up parts of the track to reach concert-goers trapped by the collapsed rigging.
