The spring demolition derby that was held at the fair has been shut down tonight after an event worker was seriously injured.
According to a Brownsville Police Officer, a worker was hit by a derby car inside the ring and has sustained serious injuries. The individual has not been named and the extent of the injuries are not yet known. The worker was being air lifted to the hospital.
Lions Club President Jimmie Duvall confirmed that the derby was canceled after the incident.
"All the drivers agreed to it. It was pretty emotional," he said. "We just don't know a whole lot right now."
