Original story:

Three people were killed and 22 injured Saturday after a car crashed into a crowd of spectators during the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.

Witnesses say that “people were flying everywhere” after the vehicle slammed into the crowd at a very high rate of speed.

Stillwater police say the driver of the vehicle, 25-year-old Adacia Chambers, has been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence.

Capt. Kyle Gibbs said Chambers’ sedan crashed into the unoccupied motorcycle of an officer who was working security at the route, then into the crowd of people.

Gibbs says eight of the 22 injured were airlifted to hospitals with critical injuries.
