Three people are reported dead after a car careened into the Oklahoma State University Homecoming parade about 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Ten people are reported with critical injuries. Information from reporters with KOKB Triple Play Sports Radio in Stillwater said 27 people had been transported with injuries, eight of those by helicopter.
KOKB reported the female driver was taken into custody. Police and emergency services personnel were in the area at the time and care was administered as quickly as possible.
A KOKB reporter quoted a Stillwater police officer saying “This was not the day we wanted.” He said officers and witnesses are still in shock about what they saw.
The car drove southbound on Main through the parade barricade, through parade itself and ended up in the Hastings parking lot on the southwest corner on Main and Hall of Fame.
