A portion of Luke Bryan’s stage collaped while workers were tearing down the structure following the superstar’s performance at Columbus, Ohio’s Schottenstein Center on Thursday night (Jan. 16).

Firefighters and rescue crews were called to the arena around midnight—an hour after Luke’s show had concluded—after receiving multiple 911 calls. Local police reported that the incident occurred while stagehands were clearing out the equipment. A preliminary investigation suggests that a forklift may have struck the back side of the stage, causing that portion of it to collapse. The accident is still under investigation at this time.

Four employees were taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries.

In 2011, a stage collapse caused by severe weather prior to Sugarland’s performance at the Indiana State Fair left seven people dead and 58 injured.
