Lawyer Defends Woman Who Crashed Into OSU Homecoming Parade as 'Mentally Ill'

Although police suspect that 25-year-old, Adacia Chambers, may have been under the influence when she drove into an OSU homecoming parade, her lawyer Tony Coleman thinks otherwise. He says that Chambers does not remember anything from a distressing moment at work until after the crash when police were helping her out of her Hyundai Elantra.

Leaving her job at Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, witnesses say they noticed her crying. Mr. Coleman says something caused her distress about an hour into work. In addition, he states that her family has had a history of mental illness causing Ms. Chambers to lose sleep on several occasions.

He said that the night before, Chambers and her grandmother went out for a walk to admire the homecoming decorations. Mr. Coleman says the next steps are to have Chambers take a psych evaluation and a competency test. Freddy's franchise owner Mark Thompson also said, “I have nothing to say about her that isn't good” and that she was an “excellent employee.”

Chambers has been charged for second-degree murder after four were killed and 46 left critically injured from her crash. Police are still waiting on toxicology reports, but Captain Kyle Gibbs said there was 'probable cause' for a DUI arrest.
