Veterans Memorial Stadium tarp accident: Winds toss tarp after Cedar Rapids Kernels baseball game

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA - (KCRG, CNN Newsource) Several people were injured at a minor league baseball game in Iowa when severe weather suddenly rolled in.

A thunderstorm packing 80-mile-an-hour winds blew a heavy field tarp around after the Cedar Rapids Kernels baseball game Monday.

It happened at Veterans Memorial Stadium as members of the team's staff and ground crew tried to pull the tarp over the field.

The wind blew the tarp on top of several people.

At least four were injured and three went to the hospital with possible concussions.

No players were on the field at the time and most of the fans had already left.
