Four fans dead after crash at Oklahoma State homecoming parade
Saturday October 24th, 2015

Four people are dead and 34 total are injured after being struck by a car at Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade Saturday, police told the Associated Press.

Police also told the AP the driver of the car responsible for the crash was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Adacia Chambers, 25, was taken into custody after crashing her car into a crowd of spectators during the Cowboys’ homecoming parade in Stillwater, Okla. 

Police confirmed later Saturday night that a two-year-old girl was one of the four people who died from injuries sustained in the crash. Prior to that report, the AP reported eight people were in critical condition. It is unclear whether that news altered that number.

Police helicopters arrived on scene to airlift injured people to local hospitals. The accident occurred on the intersection of Hall of Fame avenue and Main Street. 

Oklahoma State’s game against Kansas kicked off as normal at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Cowboys held a moment of silence for the victims before the game.
