Four people are dead and dozens injured after a car barreled into a crowd of people at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade. 

Police have charged the alleged driver, 25-year-old Adacia Chambers, with a DUI. OSU officials say Chambers isn't registered as a student.

Witnesses say the car hit a motorcycle and then plowed into spectators at the parade. Reports indicate the car was not part of the parade and was traveling at full speed before hitting the crowd.
