Stage coach mishap sends 5 to hospital with minor injuries

Eight horse hitch competition continued after short delay

 

INDIANAPOLIS Prior to tonight’s 8-horse hitch competition at the Indiana State Fair, a stage coach performing the pre-event entertainment tipped on its side while taking a turn. Six people, including the driver, were aboard the coach.  The five passengers, including the State Fair queen, were transported to Methodist Hospital with minor injuries.  All are reported to be in stable condition.

 

The driver of the coach has more than 20 years of stage coach driving experience and kept his team of six horses under control after the coach tipped.  He was examined by the medical team on site and had no injuries.  The crowd on hand was asked to leave the Coliseum until the hitch competition began at 6:30 p.m.
