Hundreds of witnesses could be called in Oklahoma State parade crash trial
STILLWATER, Okla. – Prosecutors could call more than 200 witnesses to the trial of a woman accused of killing four people and injuring dozens when she plowed her car into spectators at Oklahoma State University’s homecoming parade last fall.
Authorities said 25-year-old Adacia Chambers drove her car into an unmanned police motorcycle before plowing straight into the crowd of onlookers during Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade on Oct. 24, 2015.
In all, authorities said four people were killed and 46 others were injured in the crash.
Officials said 2-year-old Nash Lucas, 23-year-old Nikita Nakal, 65-year-old Dr. Marvin and Bonnie Stone were all killed in the crash.
Chambers was formally arraigned in Payne County on 42 counts of assault and four counts of second-degree murder. Each count carries up to life in prison.
In court, Chambers pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.
Victims, first responders, detectives and numerous spectators are on the list of 207 potential witness names filed this week in Payne County District Court in the case against Chambers.
Chambers’ attorneys filed a list of around 30 witnesses they plan to call to the trial starting Jan. 10, including co-workers at the burger and malt shop where Chambers worked, jailers, family members and mental health experts.
