Lightning injured a number of bullriders and spectators in Darby Saturday night.
While no deaths were reported, Darby law officials tell us three people were taken to the hospital and several others felt the shock.
A Bull-o-rama coordinator tells NBC Montana that seven to ten people may have been hit, and that three people were transported to Marcus Daly Hospital in ambulances.
Coordinator Cal Ruark adds that one bullrider from Missoula broke his leg behind the chute because of the lightning.
Witnesses say lightning hit the announcer booth and a pole and spidered out, then the chutes and the bleachers lit up.
Officials were preparing to clear the stands and cancel the event when the lightning struck at about 7:15 Saturday night.
50 riders from as far away as Australia are here to compete.
The event is known as the "Biggest Little Bullriding Elite Bull Connection Shoot Out."
The event was rescheduled for Sunday at 1:00 pm at the Darby rodeo grounds.
