Four people were killed, including a 2-year-old toddler and at least 30 injured on Saturday, when a car driven at a high speed by a woman suspected of being under the influence of alcohol crashed into a crowd during the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade.

The 2-year-old was reported to have died from injuries at the OU Medical Center Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City.

"People were flying everywhere," witness Dave Kapple told the media sources after the incident.

Police have identified Adacia Chambers, a 25-year-old Stillwater, Oklahoma resident as the prime suspect.

Stillwater Police Capt. Kyle Gibbs said the woman's car first hit an occupied motorcycle of a security officer who was in the parade, the car then hit the crowd head-on. 

The university shared their sadness via Twitter after the  incident.

The names of those who were killed and injured have not been released yet and eight critically injured people were flown to a hospital, officials said.

"I just saw smoke and saw the panic in people's faces as they ran away from the scene," said Geoff Haxton, who attended the parade with his children.

"People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls," Konda Walker, another spectator said to the media sources.

Stillwater police stated that Adacia Chambers has been taken into custody.
