East Brunswick first responder describes Oklahoma State Parade tragedy

- Jacob Barry, a 2015 graduate of East Brunswick High School, attends Oklahoma State University, but what he learned at home in East Brunswick helped him to address a tragedy that occurred during the most-attended football game of the season.

Football games at Oklahoma State University are more than community events. They attract visitors from all over the state who arrive in Winnebagos and on motorcycles and camp out for tailgate parties and pre-game events that last an entire weekend.  Stillwater is nowhere near as big as Oklahoma City, home of Oklahoma University, or Tulsa, a large, modern city filled with college campuses. Stillwater is in the middle of a flat plain, surrounded by huge natural football fields where cattle graze and wheat grows.

As has been reported on national news, Adacia Avery Chambers is being held on four counts of Second Degree Murder.  Chambers, a 25-year-old Stillwater resident, was originally arrested on Saturday Oct. 24 for Driving Under the Influence after a collision with a crowd of spectators at the Oklahoma State University Homecoming Parade in Stillwater. Three victims were pronounced dead at the scene and one victim, a 2-year-old boy, died at the hospital as a result of his injuries. Forty-six other people were injured in the collision.
