The state investigation was trying to determine what went wrong when the stage collapsed in August last year.

One of the agencies investigating the state fair stage collapse will release its findings Wednesday. The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration is one of the many agencies trying to figure out what went wrong last August when the stage rigging at the Indiana State Fair collapsed moments before Sugarland was to take the stage.

The collapse killed seven people and wounded dozens more. The Indiana State Fair Commission and Indiana State Police are also conducting their own investigations. In December, Indiana paid out the maximum $5 million in tort claim funds to victims and the estates of the those that died in the collapse.
