The Indiana State Attorney General announced that the state of Indiana will have to pay $5 million dollars to the families of those who were killed or injured moments before a Sugarland Concert was expected to take the stage at the Indiana State Fair. The stage collapsed due to severe thunderstorms and high winds in the area on August 13th.

According to USA Today, an additional 800-thousand dollars in private funds have been raised for the families as well. No word yet on how exactly the money will be dispersed between all of the families involved in the incident. There were seven people killed in the collapse and dozens of others injured.

$5-million is the maximum payout per incident allowed by Indiana state law.
