US Oklahoma ‘drunk driver’ kills four people
A car travelling at high speed driven by a suspected drunk driver has crashed into a crowd of spectators during a university parade in the US state of Oklahoma, killing four people and injuring 44 others, police say.
A local woman, 25, has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after her vehicle hit the crowd in Stillwater.
Witnesses described dozens of bodies being flung into the air.
The initial death toll was three, but a two-year-old boy died later from his injuries.
The accident happened as the crowds were watching a homecoming parade - a traditional event welcoming back Oklahoma State University (OSU) alumni.
The car reportedly hit a stationary police motorbike - which had no rider at the time - before ploughing into spectators at the homecoming parade.
Stillwater Mayor Gina Noble said that the incident had left people in the town heartbroken, while OSU President Burns Hargis said that what was supposed to be “a wholesome, happy event” had been besmirched by “a terrible tragedy”.
