Stage Collapses At Indiana State Fair

At least five people were killed, Saturday night as high winds caused a stage to collapse at the grandstand of the Indiana State Fair. The country music act Sugarland was to perform when winds of up to 70 mph caused the stage to sway. Authorities called for an evacuation within 10 minutes of the tragedy. In addition to the four fatalities, at least two dozen people were seriously injured.

The entire fair is closed on Sunday with a memorial service scheduled for Monday.
