INDIANAPOLIS – In light of the fatal ride accident in Ohio, this year inspectors at the Indiana State Fair have triple checked attractions.
Inspections with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security checked each ride Thursday. They said ride safety has always been a priority, but the deadly Ohio accident heightened its importance.
"We have had a lot of questions about it and I've been telling them the same thing that we are talking about here today. Which is you have to make individual choices,” said John Erickson with Homeland Security.
The ride that caused the accident in Ohio will not be operated in Indiana due to safety concerns.
Homeland Security also recommends watching the ride a couple of times before getting on and making sure the person operating the ride is attentive.
