INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
Officials say next month’s Indiana State Fair won’t include the thrill ride
similar to the one that broke apart at the Ohio State Fair, killing one man
and injuring seven other people.
The Indiana State
Fair said Thursday it’s decided with North American Midway Entertainment to
not operate the Fire Ball ride during the Aug. 4-20 fair in Indianapolis as
the Ohio investigation continues.
The Ohio State
Fair’s Fire Ball ride operated by Amusements of America malfunctioned
Wednesday night and sent riders flying into the air. Indiana fair officials
say their “thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by the tragic
accident at the Ohio State Fair.”
