INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Authorities say several people have been hurt after a stagecoach overturned at the Indiana State Fair.

Fair spokesman Andy Klotz says five people were transported to Methodist Hospital with non-life threatening injuries after the accident Sunday afternoon.  Three of the five passengers were released Sunday evening from Methodist Hospital.  Another passenger is expected to be released soon after.  One passenger will be kept overnight for observation.

The accident involved a six-horse coach making a figure-eight movement inside a ring inside the Pepsi Coliseum.

WISH says the coach was carrying four judges, a fair princess and the fair queen.

People in the stands rushed to the floor of the arena to help the injured.

The accident occurred the day before the one-year anniversary of a stage collapse at the fair that killed seven people and injured dozens of other people.
