One person is dead and seven others have been injured in an accident Wednesday night involving a ride known as ‘The Fire Ball’ at the Ohio State Fair.
The ride apparently broke apart while it was in operation. The Ohio State Fair first reported the accident on their official Twitter, saying that the incident was under investigation. It was later reported that an 18-year-old male had passed away from injuries sustained in the accident with three others transported to a local hospital with injuries, listed to be in critical but stable condition.
Officials for the Ohio State Fair made an announcement on Twitter that all rides have been shut down until they can be deemed safe.
