COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Crew's Major League Soccer game against FC Dallas was postponed Saturday night, with The Columbus Dispatch reporting on its website that a male fan was struck by lightning in the parking lot.

The Dispatch said the man was transported to a hospital. The Crew said the game was called off because of "reasons beyond our control" and that makeup date had not been set.

The game was scheduled to start at 8 p.m. The storm with heavy rain and lightning bursts rolled through about 15 minutes before kickoff. Fans were told to evacuate the stands and head toward the concourses of the double-decked stadium. The game was called at 9:12 p.m.
