Indiana pays more to victims of state fair stage collapse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Victims of the Indiana State Fair stage collapse will get $6 million more in aid.

The Indiana attorney general's office is sending out checks to 59 victims of last year's accident.

That's the amount of supplemental relief that was approved earlier this year by the General Assembly.

The state had already paid out $5 million, the limit for tort claims under Indiana law.

The second round of state payments pays off the medical expenses for victims whose injuries weren't permanent.

The August 2011 accident at the state fair killed seven people and injured 60 others.
