Stillwater Police Call For OSU Parade Victims, Witnesses, To Step Forward
The Stillwater Police Department is requesting information from the public to piece together its investigation into the fatal crash at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.
Four people have died as a result of the crash and four dozen were injured, some critically. Second-degree murder charges have been brought against a woman police say was driving the car that left the nearby roadway and plowed into spectators on a blocked-off street. The district attorney believes the woman drove into the crowd intentionally, documents say.
