Sugarland lead singer gives deposition on stage collapse tragedy

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- We're now getting a closer look into the deposition of Sugarland's lead singer.

Jennifer Nettles was questioned about the events at last summer’s deadly Indiana State Fair stage collapse.

Her band was set to perform just moments before it toppled over due to heavy winds. The scaffolding on the stage gave in killing seven people and injuring dozens more leading to several lawsuits being filed.

Nettles was asked about the decisions leading up to the collapse.

Reports released last week show the scaffolding was not up code and the Indiana State Fair did not have sufficient emergency plans in place.
