STILLWATER, Okla., Oct. 25 (UPI) -- A two-year-old boy is among the four people who died after a suspected drunk driver plowed into an Oklahoma State University homecoming parade Saturday.
The boy was pronounced dead after being taken to a local children's hospital. Three adults -- a married couple and an MBA student from India -- were also among those killed. Five people, ranging in age from 37 to 61, remain in critical condition. Up to 12 others, six who are children, remain hospitalized. Another 30 people were treated and released.
Adacia Chambers, 25, was arrested Saturday on a charge of driving under the influence. Sunday, she was charged with four counts of second-degree murder. If she is convicted, she could face life in prison, police said. She is set to appear in court on Monday.
Stillwater, Okla. police identified Bonnie and Marvin Stone, both 65, as among those killed in the crash. It is unclear if the two are related, but there is a Marvin and Bonnie Stone Endowed Scholarship Fund at Oklahoma State University. The school says Marvin Stone was a biosystems and agricultural engineering professor who retired in 2006.
Nikita Prabhakar, a 23-year-old MBA student from Mumbai, India was also killed in the crash, police said. She was a student at the University of Central Oklahoma. The school identified her as Nikita Nakal.
"Our students come to Central with their unique goals, hopes and dreams, and Nikita was undoubtedly no different," university President Don Betz said.
Floyd Chambers, the suspect's father, said he was shocked to learn of his daughter's arrest in the incident. "I can't figure this out," Chambers said. "This is not the person that's my daughter...I can't imagine alcohol being involved. She is not an alcoholic that I'm aware of. This is just not who she is."
Von Castor, a meteorologist for a local television station, was taking part in the parade when the crash happened and witnessed the scene.
"A car barreled through barricades and into the crowd where the parade was ending," Castor said. "It was an absolute horrible scene. I don't know what the fatality count is, but I did see two fatalities. It brought me to tears."
Chambers' attorney, Tony Coleman, told the Oklahoman, he believes his client is mentally ill and was not driving drunk.
"I have deep concerns about her competency at this point," Coleman said. "I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist, but I can tell you she's suffering from mental illness. I absolutely can rule out alcohol as an intoxicant. Her behavior was not consistent with someone coming out of an alcoholic stupor."
