Death Toll Hits 6 in Indiana Fair Stage Crash

INDIANAPOLIS -- Family members say a Ball State University senior has become the sixth person to die from injuries suffered in a stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair.

The Star Press reported 22-year-old Jennifer Haskell died Friday morning at a hospital in Indianapolis. Her uncle, Mike Whited, announced her death in a statement Friday morning.

Haskell was injured when a wind gust toppled the metal scaffolding holding lights and other equipment and sent it plunging into fans awaiting a concert by the country group Sugarland last Saturday.
