STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

A memorial at the intersection of Main and Hall of Fame took shape Sunday.

Dozens of people stopped by all afternoon, leaving flowers and teddy bears to honor the victims. Some said a prayer and others stood in silence.

Hundreds gathered for a vigil at the OSU Student Union Sunday evening.

And as the community continued to cope with the aftermath of the horrific homecoming day crash, new details were revealed about the woman behind the wheel.

Neighbors across the street from the home Adacia Chambers rented told News 9 they didn't know her, but they said she was driving recklessly long before police said she sped into a crowd of spectators at the parade on Saturday.

"We always see her, I guess, when she's going to work or coming home from work. She just speeds down here and just like whips into the driveway," said neighbor Kameron McNealy.

Her attorney Tony Coleman said Sunday he did not think she was driving under the influence at the time but was mentally ill. Coleman said he didn't get many details from her last night about what happened.

"From the time she left work until the time of the incident, there's an area there where she doesn't remember much of anything and wasn't able to communicate with me much at all about that," he said in a press conference.
