Homecoming Horror: Car Slams Into Parade at OSU… 3 Dead, 10 Critical, 27 Airlifted [Video]

Just horrific. Someone just plowed into the crowds at the Homecoming Parade at Oregon State University this morning. Three are confirmed dead, ten are in critical condition and 27 have been airlifted to hospitals. Eight helicopters are on scene. The collision happened at Main Street and Hall of Fame at around 10 a.m. Multiple people were transported by personal vehicle, including small children. Multiple air ambulances have been used as ambulances from the surrounding community. Lesser injured people are being transported from the scene by an Oklahoma State University bus. My prayers are with those in Oklahoma City. This is just awful.

The Stillwater, Okla., mayor has confirmed that three people are dead , two others in critical condition, and 27 have been airlifted to area hospitals, the paper reported. Eight helicopters responded to the scene.

Police were reporting three dead and 22 injured, according to The Associated Press.

Witnesses told KOTV there was a terrifying crash as a car slammed into parade watchers at a high rate of speed. A police motorcycle unit was also hit, the station reported.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. John Vincent reported multiple injuries at the scene, but said that he had no further details. The News Press tweeted that the woman driver was taken into custody.

“At first we thought it was part of the show,” one witness told the paper. “People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls.”

Another witness told the paper he saw the car plow in the crowd.

“All I saw was bodies flying, kids flying. It was horrible,” Larry Smith said.

Phone calls to Stillwater police and to Oklahoma State officials were not immediately returned.

Oklahoma State is to host Kansas in its annual homecoming game Saturday afternoon.

At first, everyone thought it was part of the show. Then people began flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls. They say a woman was driving the car. She has tentatively been identified as 25 year-old, Adacia Chambers. She was drunk. Thousands show up for these festivities. Today turned deadly because some idiot decided to get soused early in the day and plow her car into a crowd full of families and children. This is a developing story and a very sad one. I live just 100 miles from where this happened.
