A vehicle plowed into a crowd of spectators Saturday during the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade, causing three deaths and dozens of injuries.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said multiple people were injured, however, provided no other details about the incident.
Dave Kapple of Houston told the Stillwater News Press that he and his son were about 10 feet away when they saw the 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.” Konda Walker, from Anchorage, Alaska, was attending the festivities ahead of the homecoming game between Oklahoma State and Kansas. “At first we thought it was part of the show,” Walker told the News Press. “People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls.” abc7
