A car crashed into the Oklahoma State homecoming parade Saturday “at a high rate of speed,” killing three people and injuring nearly three dozen others.

Stillwater police said Saturday afternoon that 34 people were injured, including eight critically. The accident happened when a woman, identified as 25-year-old Adacia Chambers, drove her car into a crowd near the end of the parade route. She was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

From the Tulsa World:

A vehicle collided into parade attendees near the intersection of East Hall of Fame Avenue and North Main Street, according to multiple witnesses. The intersection is near the end of the parade route where a large concentration of people were watching the parade.

From the World, continued:

Geoff Haxton, who was about 100 yards away from the incident, said a 4-door vehicle not affiliated with the parade crashed into the crowd. Other witnesses told him the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed.

The accident happened at approximately 10:30 a.m. CT in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Oklahoma State’s game against Kansas kicked off as scheduled at 2:30 p.m. as the school’s president told reporters that “We’re going to play and we’re going to remember the victims.”

There was a pregame moment of silence and the flags at T. Boone Pickens Stadium were lowered to half-staff.

Oklahoma State released a statement via its Twitter account after the accident.

The car, according to police captain Kyle Gibbs, first struck a police motorcycle that was unoccupied and then into the crowd watching the parade.
