Sugarland Show Interrupted by Devastating Stage Collapse

Sugarland
Kevin Winter

Information is surfacing about the horrific scene at tonight’s Sugarland concert in Indiana. According to reports, high winds caused the stage to collapse on the fans below who were waiting for the duo to perform. Police officers have accounted for as many as four deaths, and more than 40 people were taken to area hospitals for injuries — some critical.

Details are still breaking, but the band was scheduled for a concert at the Indiana State Fair when 60 mph winds took the stage down just after 9PM. “We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you’ll join us. They need your strength,” the band tweeted just before 10PM Saturday night (Aug. 13).

According to IndyStar.com, rescuers have attempted to dig a tunnel to reach fans who may be trapped beneath the stage, and Indiana Homeland Security has dubbed the destruction a Level 1 emergency.

We’ll bring you more information as it’s made available.
