Tragedy struck the Oklahoma State University community yesterday around 10:30 a.m. when a drunk driver plowed into the crowd at a homecoming parade.
A total of three people, including a 2-year-old boy, and more than 40 others were injured, according to NBC News. The person who was responsible for this accident has been identified as 25-year-old Adacia Chambers. She was immediately charged for a DUI and was taken into custody.
Witnesses provided gruesomely descriptive details: “I can’t describe it any more clearly than this: People flying in the air.” Another witness recalled: “At first, we thought it was part of the show. People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls.”
Oklahoma State released a statement regarding the tragic accident and OSU’s athletic department decided to proceed with yesterday’s football game.
Our prayers go out to the victim’s families during this tragic time.
