There has been a tragedy this morning at the homecoming parade in Stillwater, Oklahoma, for Oklahoma State University. Some moron in a car plowed into a crowd of people, knocking some as much as 30’ in the air, killing at least 3 and injuring between 30 and 40 others. So far, 6 of the victims have been air-lifted by helicopter to the closest primary trauma care center at the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. At this time, we don’t know WHY it happened or whether or not the driver had been drinking. It’s presumed that those 6 airlifted were the most seriously injured, but information is slow coming in right now.
Correction, there were 8 critical injuries flown to OKC, 9 classed as “serious” and another 10 the police refer as “walking wounded”. Those 19 are being treated at a local, Stillwater hospital. A 25-year-old Stillwater woman was driving the car which first hit a parked, police motorcycle then plowed into a crowd of spectators at the parade. She has been arrested for DUI and is currently in jail.
