(WHAS11) -- The Indiana State fair queen is back on the job after the stage coach she was riding in crashed.

Erika Burghardt was one of six people on the stage coach when it overturned on Sunday night.  She was riding on top beside the driver when the vehicle fell over.

Video from people in the crowd showed the six-horse coach tipping onto its side while making a figure eight like turn on the arena's dirt floor.

"Everyone's doing fine, I'm fine and I'm excited to be back out here again today," said Erika Burghardt.

The driver was treated at the scene.  All the passengers were taken to the hospital, but have since been released.

Indiana State police say the crash was an accident.
