NORMAN, Okla. – As one Oklahoma university is mourning a tragic event that claimed four lives near campus, another is paying tribute to that school.
As hundreds of people were celebrating Oklahoma State University’s homecoming on Saturday, a car plowed through the crowd, killing four people and injuring dozens of others.
The crash claimed the lives of 2-year-old Nash Lucas, 23-year-old Nikita Nakal, Dr. Marvin Stone and his wife, Bonnie.
Officials say 25-year-old Adacia Chambers was driving the car and is now facing four counts of second-degree murder.
A little less than 100 miles away, members of another Oklahoma university were stunned by the news.
On Sunday, the University of Oklahoma Choir was set to perform a homecoming concert after OU defeated Texas Tech on Saturday.
Instead of continuing the program as planned, the choir took a moment of silence to remember and honor those impacted by the tragedy at OSU.
Following the moment of silence, the choir performed “Proud & Immortal,” OSU’s alma mater.
“Proud and immortal
Bright shines your name
We herald your fame
Ever you’ll find us
Loyal and true
To our alma mater
