Expo Commission Approves Lawsuit Settlement Involving Fire Ball Ride Accident

U.S. Marine Corps via Associated Press

The Ohio Expositions Commission has approved a settlement with the victims of last year's fatal Fire Ball ride accident at the state fair.  

The deal releases the state and the fair from liability.  No money will change hands. The settlement must be approved by the Ohio Court of Claims. 18-year-old Tyler Jarrell was killed and seven other people were hurt on July 26 when the ride broke apart.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
