Race car ends up in grandstands during Du Quoin State Fair demolition derby

A car went off the tracks and into the stands during the Demolition Derby at the Du Quoin State Fair Saturday night. 

There were not any injuries according to SIUC junior Collin Dorsey.  Dorsey, who is majoring in Radio, TV and Digital Media, tells Local 6 there was a brief intermission to cleanup the area, but the races continued.

Dorsey says the crash happened around 8:30pm when a car veered off the tracks, went through a fence and over a berm before ending up in the grandstands.
