Oklahoma State University mourns as a woman kills four and injuries dozens more in apparent DUI.
A woman accused of driving while intoxicated, smashed into a parade at Oklahoma State University killing four people and injuring dozens more, including eleven victims that were under the age of thirteen. Adacia Chambers will appear in court facing four charges of second-degree murder and life in prison.
The victims of this accident include a grad student, a couple who worked at the school, and a toddler. OSU president Burns Hargis said that the accident was an “incomprehensible tragedy”, in which OSU lost three “members of the OSU family.”
At 10:31 a.m., Chambers drove her Hyundai Elantra into a police motorcycle before plowing into the crowd of spectators. This was just hours before the school’s homecoming event—a football game between the OSU Cowboys and the University of Kansas.
The game proceeded as planned, with the whole OSU team kneeling in prayer on the field before the game. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this terrible incident.
