Lucas-Oil-Stadium-ColtsINDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two football fans were injured Sunday at Indianapolis when a rail collapsed after Indianapolis defeated Oakland 21-17.

Colts spokesman Avis Roper said there was no immediate word on how severely the fans were injured.

Those nearby said the fans were leaning against a railing above the tunnel used by the Oakland Raiders. When it gave way, the fans fell onto the walkway that led to the team’s locker rooms.

One fan was taken away on a stretcher and another, witnesses said, left in a wheelchair, though the Colts would not confirm that.
