Grand jury indicts NC state fair ride owner, operator

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - A grand jury indicted the owner and the operator of a State Fair ride that sent 5 people to the hospital in October.
     
Three of those people are still being cared for at Wake-Med in Raleigh.
     
The Vortex ride stopped to let riders off on October 24th, but then it sprang back to life flinging nearby riders into the air.
     
Joshua Macaroni and Timothy Tutterrow face charges of negligence for disabling safety features.
