(Radio.com) A lawsuit has been filed against Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, as well as the owner of BB&T Pavilion stemming from the collapse of a security barrier at their August 5 concert in Camden, New Jersey, reports Rolling Stone.

On Wednesday (August 24), lawyers representing 17 of the people injured at the show filed suit in Philadelphia. "The safety of patrons at concerts must always be paramount," attorney Robert J. Mongeluzzi says in a statement. "The failure of this railing at the concert venue was caused by a failure in planning and execution. A second stage was located beneath a lawn area with no seat or aisles, leading to crowd surge when Snoop Dogg screamed, 'Everybody in the motherf-- lawn, bring your ass down here.'"

Mongeluzzi says two primary factors led to the collapse: "a dangerous location of the second stage beneath the uncontrolled lawn area with no barricades controlling crowd flow" and "the artist screaming for fans to surge to the area, which they did."

The lawsuit blames the accident on lack of proper precautions to ensure the safety of concertgoers. Read more here.
