STILLWATER, Okla. – Charges against a woman accused of killing four people and injuring dozens of others while they were watching Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade have been amended.

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.

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.

She is officially charged with four counts of second-degree murder and 46 counts of felony assault.

Last week, the prosecution announced that 58 to 70 witnesses will be called during Chambers’ preliminary hearing, according to court documents.

“Today the Payne County District Attorney’s Office filed an amended information in the case of State of Oklahoma v. Adacia Chambers. This amendment was not unexpected. Since the State’s initial filing, an abundance of information has been received from victims, witnesses, first responders and various law enforcement agencies. After thorough review of the volumes of information received it was determined that the 46 counts contained in the recently filed amended information best fit the evidence as known to the District Attorney’s Office at this time. Additionally, the State has added a significant number of additional witnesses including persons who have been identified as a result of their presence at the crime scene, as well as additional law enforcement personnel. This is a continuing investigation, and it is likely many more witnesses will be added as additional reports are received from other agencies and additional citizen witnesses are located. District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas stated that, “In a crime of this magnitude many agencies and people from our immediate community, as well as many other locations, continue to be involved in the investigation,” a statement from the district attorney’s office said.

Amended documents show that Chambers is now facing four counts of second-degree murder and 41 counts of felony assault.

The preliminary hearing is set for April 7.
