Stillwater Police 1Stillwater, Okla. — There are four dead including a 2-year-old boy and 44 injured were hospitalized after a young woman crashed into a police motorcycle and then ran amok among parade goers Saturday morning.
At last report, 17 remained hospitalized and five were in a critical condition, police said early Sunday.
The annual Oklahoma State University (OSU) homecoming parade had drawn a crowd when the tragedy struck.
Police took into custody 25-year-old Adacia Chambers of Stillwater, charged with DUI. Police said blood tests are still out to determine if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Update: Stillwater Police Sunday said Chambers also would be charged with four counts of second degree murder.

Stillwater Police said Sunday that she remained in the city jail.

Chambers likely will appear in court Monday, and the additional charges would be presented to the Payne County District Attorney’s office, police said in a statement.

Chambers’ attorney, Tony Coleman of Oklahoma City, has said he didn’t believe she was intoxicated and he did believe she was suffering from mental illness.

The accident occurred during the morning parade, and the Homecoming game went on Saturday afternoon as scheduled. The OSU Cowboys Saturday defeated the Kansas Jayhawks 58-10, improving their season record to 7-0.
