Adacia Chambers sentenced to life in prison for Oct. 2015 homecoming crash.

Adacia Chambers, the Oklahoma woman who killed four people when she rammed her car into a college homecoming parade, has been sentenced to life behind bars.

Chambers was taken into custody back in October 2015 after she sent a crowd of individuals “flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls” outside of the football stadium at Oklahoma State University.

The now 26-year-old was indicted on four counts of murder for the retired couple, Indian graduate student, and a 2-year-old child that she killed, along with 39 counts of battery and assault for injuring dozens of others.

Many children were among those wounded in the incident.

Chambers pleaded no contest and agreed to the life sentence plus ten years on Tuesday, stating in court that she prayed for the victims and was “suffering from psychosis that day.”

She was arrested after officers suspected that she was driving while intoxicated, although court documents revealed that her blood alcohol level was 0.01.

Her attorney, Tony Coleman, told KOTV that he was intending on presenting an insanity defense, but that Chambers did not want to put families of the victims through a trial.

The lawyer said the father of Adacia Chambers had taken her for mental health treatment before the accident, but that she was refused or misdiagnosed.

Those fatalities in the 2015 crash are 65-year-olds Bonnie and Marvin Stone, MBA student Nakita Prabhakar, 23, and 2-year-old Nash Lucas.
