(STILLWATER, Okla.) — Four people were killed and 22 injured when a car plowed into a crowd at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade Saturday in Stillwater, according to officials.

The fourth death, a 2-year-old, was confirmed to ABC News by OU Medical Center later on Saturday.

The driver, identified as Adacia Chambers, 25, was taken into custody for driving under the influence after the horrific crash after 10:30 a.m. The case was being treated like a homicide investigation.

Police said the vehicle, a Hyundai Elantra, smashed into an unmanned police motorcycle on Main Street and then into a crowd of people at the parade.

Eight of the injured were in critical condition, seven in serious condition and seven others were less seriously injured, police said.

“We are heartbroken,” said Mayor Gina Noble.

Despite the incident, OSU went ahead with the football game scheduled for Saturday against Kansas. The crowd observed a moment of silence before the game.

“We’re going to play, and we’re going to remember the victims at the game, and we’re going–  going to move forward,” said OSU President Burns Hargis.
