Five people were injured Thursday night after a ride at the N.C. State Fair malfunctioned.
It happened around 9:17 p.m. on a ride called the Vortex, which is along on the old midway section behind the Expo Center on the fairgrounds. Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said an initial investigation showed the ride had stopped and people were getting off when it suddenly started up again. As of 7 a.m. Friday, three people were still at WakeMed Hospital, with one person in critical condition.
