An immense crowd had gathered to attend an outdoor performance by Sugarland at the Indiana State Fair Saturday when severe weather rolled into the area, bringing the elaborate stage roof and lighting structure down onto the people below. Some had begun to run from the scene just before the accident – narrowly escaping injury or even death. Spectators with videophones were capturing the collapse and subsequent panic as it happened. Just ten minutes before the collapse, a severe storm warning had been enacted. As of this post, five people have died and at least 45 people were injured – the injuries serious enough that the death toll could rise. Winds were estimated to be between 60 to 70 miles per hour, raising the question of whether the concert area should have been evacuated well before the incident.

The collapse video below, followed by a full report from NBC.
