There's been an accident on the carousel at the Mississippi State Fair, according to officials.
Patty Powers with North American Midway Entertainment tells us a fiberglass piece of scenery on the ride fell about four feet striking two people around 2:00 p.m. Saturday. She confirms one adult and one child were hit by the falling fiberglass. She says they initially did not want first aid, but eventually they did agree to get checked out.
Powers says no one else was injured. The carousel was fixed and inspected, and fairgoers were allowed back on the ride.
