We're learning more about some of the people injured at the OSU Homecoming parade Saturday in Stillwater.

The latest numbers from Stillwater Police indicate three people were killed, eight critically injured, nine seriously injured and 17 others "walking wounded." That's a total of 37 victims.

News On 6 reporter Tess Maune learned about one girl who was in Stillwater hoping to go to her first Cowboys game.

"Her name is Madison Atwell. She is a 7-year-old Skiatook Elementary second grader who loves her Cowboys. She is one of the survivors of the OSU Homecoming Parade crash, but she has some serious injuries.

Her uncle tells me Madison has a head injury and broke several ribs. She was life-flighted to a hospital in OKC. 

Another family member said Madison was supposed to get to go to her first OSU football game Saturday but instead took her first helicopter ride.

Madison was with her grandmother and aunt. Her grandma broke her hip and the aunt fractured her leg. There are just three of many victims."

Police say a 25-year-old woman was driving under the influence when she crashed into a large crowd at the parade. Though police say Adacia Chambers lives in Stillwater, her Facebook page identifies her as an Oologah resident.

We know at least one Oologah band parent was also injured. The band was in Stillwater to march in the parade.

Band members shared a prayer after arriving back home Saturday afternoon. Several of them witnessed the crash.
