Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) -- At least three performers remain in critical condition following a circus accident in Providence.

Authorities are trying to determine what caused a support frame to collapse Sunday during the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey "Legends" show at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.

The accident occurred during an act in which the circus says performers Dayana Costa, Julissa Segrera, and Stefany Neves were in critical condition Monday morning.  Viktoriya Medeiros and Viktorila Liakhova were listed in serious condition, while Samantha Pitard, Svitlana Balanicheva, and Widny Nevas were listed in good condition.

The names and conditions of three others injured in the accident have not been released.
