Woman charged in OSU homecoming parade crash accepts plea deal

From Staff and Wire Reports STILLWATER, Okla. – Adacia Chambers, who was accused of a deadly crash that claimed four lives during a homecoming parade this past October has accepted a plea deal.

In exchange for pleading no contest to the charges, Chambers will be sentenced to four concurrent life sentences and 10 years for each of 39 assault charges, which will also run concurrently.

Authorities said Chambers drove her car into a crowd of onlookers during Oklahoma State’s homecoming parade.

National Transportation Safety Board reports showed Chambers’ car accelerated from 54 mph to 59 mph in the five seconds before she struck a police motorcycle blocking the roadway.

Authorities said four people were killed and 46 others were injured in the crash.

Chambers was originally charged with four counts of second-degree murder and 42 counts of assault and battery.

Previously, Chambers’ attorney had claimed that she was not in her right state of mind when she drove into the crowd of spectators.
