TORONTO (AP) - Investigators are combing through the wreckage of a Toronto stage, trying to determine what caused the structure to come crashing down ahead of a Radiohead concert yesterday.

The British band says the collapse killed its drum technician, Scott Johnson.

Police say he was trapped under the rubble and pronounced dead at the scene. Three people were injured. Two were treated at the scene and one is in the hospital with a head injury that's not considered life-threatening.

Officials from the Ontario Ministry of Labor searched through the wreckage for clues to the cause of the collapse. They're also investigating whether safety regulations and standards were followed and if staff was properly trained.

Radiohead's website had listed the concert as being sold out, with 40,000 tickets sold. The band says fans can get refunds for the canceled show at points of purchase.
