RALEIGH | A thrill ride op­er­a­tor is co­op­er­at­ing with investigators prob­ing a mishap at the North Carolina State Fair that left sev­eral peo­ple hurt, au­thor­i­ties said Mon­day.

A judge re­duced Ti­mothy Dwayne Tut­terow’s bond from $225,000 to $100,000 at the re­quest of Wake County Dis­trict At­tor­ney Colon Wil­loughby, who said the 46-year-old “has been co­op­er­a­tive and help­ful with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.”

“We’ve sat down and talked to him,” Mr. Wil­loughby told the judge.

Mr. Tut­ter­row, of Quit­man, Ga., has been in jail since his Oct. 26 ar­rest. He was op­er­at­ing the Vor­tex ride last month when it sud­denly spun into mo­tion as peo­ple were try­ing to get out.
