    Daily Mail:

    Three dead and 22 rushed to hospital after car 'traveling at 50mph' plows into the crowd
    'sending people flying 30-feet into the air' at Oklahoma State University homecoming parade

    'At first we thought it was part of the show,' Konda Walker, a 1991 OSU alumna, told the Stillwater News Press. 'People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls.'

    Stillwater police Capt. Kyle Gibbs said the woman's sedan plowed into an unoccupied motorcycle of an officer who was working security at the parade, then into the crowd. The driver of the sedan was taken into custody on a DUI charge, Gibbs said.

    Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis said the homecoming game against Kansas would be played Saturday afternoon.

    The driver of the car, 25-year-old Adacia Chambers, has been arrested for driving under the influence. Police say she is currently a Stillwater resident, and her Facebook page says she's from Oologah.

    It's not completely clear in the articles that she was intoxicated by alcohol. I wonder if it will turn out to be a combination of Rx drugs or a seizure. 10:30 am is awfully early to be so extremely drunk.

    What a sad case.

    I think so too, and I wonder if it's Ambien.
