Several Hurt in Coach Crash at Indiana State Fair

August 14, 2012

Authorities say several people have been hurt after a stagecoach overturned at the Indiana State Fair.

Fair spokesman Andy Klotz says five people were transported to Methodist Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the accident Sunday afternoon.

WISH-TV quotes Indiana State Police as saying there are no serious injuries.

The accident involved a six-horse coach making a figure-eight movement inside a ring inside the Pepsi Coliseum.

WISH says the coach was carrying four judges, a fair princess and the fair queen.

People in the stands rushed to the floor of the arena to help the injured.

The accident occurred the day before the one-year anniversary of a stage collapse at the fair that killed seven people and injured dozens of other people.
