OSU parade driver could face more charges

STILLWATER, Okla._A fifth victim who was hurt when Adacia Chambers crashed her car into the OSU Homecoming parade crowd is reportedly in a fragile state Tuesday morning. Prosecutors set a $1 million bond and asked for two more weeks to file formal charges. The prosecutor says this case is complex, and they need time to compile and review evidence. But the main reason was that fifth victim may not survive their injuries.

Chambers is facing four counts of second-degree murder for the deaths of three adults and a 2-year-old boy. The district attorney expects additional charges related to the dozens of people hurt.

Chambers family spoke out yesterday before the hearing. They say they are praying for the victims, and they don't know how this could have happened.

"We don't have the answers. We don't know what happened because the girl I seen Friday night ... was happy, funny, caring,“ said Chamber’s aunt Lynda Branstetter.

According to court documents, Chambers admitted to having a history of suicide attempts, and was suicidal during the crash. Her father says she spent a few weeks at a mental facility four years ago. Chamber's attorney Tony Coleman requested a full psychological evaluation. After the hearing she was visited by a doctor she will be seeing for the next couple weeks.

Chambers' next court date is set for 1:30 p.m. on November 13.

    Prosecutors in Oklahoma have charged a 13-year-old boy with first-degree murder in the crossbow killing of a 10-year-old friend. The death happened last fall in the small town of Chandler, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. Authorities say 10-year-old Austin Almanza was fatally struck by an arrow, which traveled through his body and then pierced his 8-year-old brother in the arm.
