NORMAN, Okla. – An Oklahoma State fan could be seen on the sidelines cheering on the Sooners this past Saturday against TCU.
Hadley Wyatt, 6, was at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade with her family when 25-year-old Adacia Chambers plowed her car into an unmanned police motorcycle before continuing on into a crowd of people.
Hadley’s family found her about three-fourths of the distance across the intersection where they had been standing, her mother told the Tulsa World.
“I started screaming,” Sara Wyatt said. “I thought she was dead. It was him and her lying on the ground. She was lying face up and she had blood coming out of her neck and her eyes. I thought she was gone — I don’t think she was conscious.”
The young girl was airlifted to OU Medical and treated for skin abrasions and road rash.
Fortunately, she has since recovered from those injuries and has returned to school.
Four weeks after the OSU homecoming crash, Hadley was on the sidelines, supporting another Oklahoma team.
“We are Oklahoma State fans, but OU has treated us so well today and they treated us so well at OU Children’s Hospital. We’re all Oklahomans and we appreciate all the support that OU gave us on that day and this opportunity that we have right here,” Sara Wyatt told Sooner Sports.
Hadley spent the better part of the game spending time with Trevor Knight, until he had to take over for quarterback Baker Mayfield.
The Sooners and the Cowboys will battle it out on Saturday during the Bedlam in Stillwater.
