STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -

A two-year-old boy died Saturday evening from injuries the toddler suffered when a driver suspected to be under the influence plowed into a crowd at a homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University, according to police.

Three other people were killed at the scene of horrific crash and more than 40 were injured, police said.

The 25-year-old driver of the car, Adacia Chambers, was charged with driving under the influence and taken into custody, Stillwater police Capt. Kyle Gibbs said at an afternoon news conference.

Chambers allegedly drove the 2014 Hyundai Elantra into an unmanned police motorcycle before striking the crowd at around 10:30 a.m.

Witnesses described the horror after what was supposed to be a carefree day turned tragic.

Tracy Epperson, from Tulsa, told NBC affiliate KJRH that she first heard "people screaming."

"I turn around, and you just see bodies flying in the air," she said. "That's what's going to be in my mind for forever."

Police have not released identities or information about the victims, but one of those killed was a student at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond, according to a statement from the school's president, Dr. Don Betz.

Authorities say it's too early to know what caused Chambers to allegedly drive into the crowd, but the investigation is being treated as a homicide and the Stillwater Police Department was reconstructing the scene. Police don't believe Chambers, who is from Stillwater, is a student.

Forty-four people were injured in the crash, including at least seven who were critically wounded and nine who were seriously injured, according to police.
