Multiple People Injured As Fireworks Shot Into Crowd At July 4th Concert

Several people were injured after fireworks shot into the crowd at the Stadium of Fire show at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Thursday (July 4) night.

The incident occurred just after a military flyover when fireworks were set off around the stadium. Some of the fireworks misfired and landed in the crowd.

Multiple people were injured and treated at the scene, while one person was hospitalized in critical condition. According to KSL, that person was struck in the face by one of the fireworks.

Despite the mishap, the show continued after a brief break and ended without further incident.

“Safety is of the upmost importance to us. All pyrotechnics at Stadium of Fire are thoroughly checked before the show, and were rechecked after tonight’s incident. Our thoughts are with those were impacted, and we are following up with them to make sure they are OK,” the event organizers, America’s Freedom Festival, said in a statement.
