Adacia Avery Chambers was charged Sunday with four counts of second-degree murder for allegedly crashing her car into an Oklahoma State University homecoming parade, killing four and injuring nearly 50.

Reuters reported that Chambers, 25, is suspected of having been intoxicated at the time of the incident, however her lawyer said he thinks she was sober.

"I don't believe right now that she was intoxicated," said her lawyer, Tony Coleman. "I have deep concerns about her competency at this point. I'm not a psychologist or psychiatrist, but I can tell you she's suffering from mental illness."

A blood test was administered to Chambers following the crash, and Stillwater police are awaiting results of that test to determine the possible intoxication.

Describing the crash, which killed three adults and one toddler, parade-goer Mark McNitt said it sounded like a bomb going off.

"The only thing I can relate it to is some type of bombing," he said. "All I remember was a gush of wind and then the sound."

McNitt, whose father-in-law was critically injured in the crash, said the car jumped the curb and mowed down a large swath of people gathered.

"The screaming . . . a lot of screaming," he said.

The three adults that died were Nakita Prabhakar, 23, Bonnie Jean Stone, 65, and Marvin Lyle Stone, 65. The toddler, unnamed, died later on Saturday.

Floyd Chambers, Adacia's father, said she lived in Stillwater with her boyfriend. He said she was timid, and not an alcoholic.

"They’re going to paint her into a horrible person but this is not [her]," he said.
