RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Five people at the North Carolina State Fair have been sent to the hospital with unknown injuries after going on a ride called the "Vortex."

The ride spins, twirls and flips riders upside down.

A preliminary investigation indicates the passengers were hurt when the ride started up again as they were getting off.

A state fair spokesman says two of the injuries "appear to be serious."
