An accident at the Pensacola Interstate Fair injured four people when a piece of metal from a ride. The accident occurred around 2:30pm, and the Tidal Wave was shut down. It was the last day of the fair, which began on October 22.
Despite the accident, many fair-goers continued waiting in line for rides and enjoying the last day of the festivities.
The scope of their injuries and the identities of those injured at the fair were not disclosed, but the accident will be investigated thoroughly. The Bureau of Fair Rides, a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture, holds the responsibility of inspecting fair rides throughout the state of Florida.
