Victims Accept Settlement in Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse

The majority of the victims from the stage collapse at the 2011 Indiana State Fair have chosen to take a settlement offered by the state and two private companies. According to the Associated Press, 51 of the 62 eligible claimants have chosen to accept their portion of the $13.2 million offer, but more could follow.

You’ll remember last year on August, 13, high winds ripped down light and sound rigging, and caused the stage to collapse just moments before Sugarland‘s show. The collapse killed seven and injured dozens more.

Those victims who choose to accept the combined settlement, agreed to release Mid-America Sound and James Thomas Engineering from additional liability.

This year’s Indiana State Fair kicked off today. This year fair goers can see for free — Easton Corbin, Thomas Rhett, The Lost Trailers, Casey James and more. But fans can also purchase tickets tickets to see Blake Shelton, Sunny Sweeney and Caroline Kole.
