DA says Oklahoma parade deaths seem intentional
STILLWATER, Okla. - A prosecutor says it appears that a woman accused of driving her car into a homecoming parade near Oklahoma State University did so "purposely."
Payne County District Attorney Laura Thomas said Monday that the evidence suggests that the deaths of four people during Saturday's parade were "an intentional act." She says Adacia Chambers drove around a barricade and ran a red light before hitting parade-goers and that she would have been able to see the crowd from far away.
Chambers is being held on four preliminary counts of second-degree murder.
Special District Judge Katherine Thomas set Chambers' bond at $1 million and ordered her to undergo a psychological evaluation.
