Multiple deaths, injuries reported after car hits Okla. St. parade crowd

Source: Fox Sports

Three people reportedly have been killed with many others injured after a car crashed into a crowd attending the Oklahoma State homecoming parade Saturday morning.

According to News On 6, a car traveling at a high speed crashed into parade-goers. The station is also reporting that a motorcyclist was hit, and it could be a police unit. The station said the car was not part of the parade.

Dave Kapple of Houston told the Stillwater News Press that he and his son were about 10 feet away when they saw a vehicle barreling into the crowd.

"We heard somebody scream, 'Look out!.' (He) plowed through a police motorcycle, and then a crowd of people," Kapple said. "People were flying everywhere."

9. Did you see where she was trying to commit suicide?

You can tell her attorney is trying for an insanity defense. She has been charged with four counts of second degree murder which could be 4 lifetime sentences. Plus all the charges for the almost 50 people who were hurt.

What a nightmare. I feel so sorry for those people who just happened to get in her way.
