STILLWATER, OK – Today she's in court. But what lead to 25 year old Adacia Chambers plowing her car into the homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University?

She's charged with four counts of second degree murder and driving under the influence, but her attorney says something else was going on. Tony Coleman attributes the deadly crash to mental illness.

"It's been shared that there were several days that she would go without sleeping... a very uneasiness about her, uncertainty about her future, her perception about herself, her perception about what others thought about her..." he says.

Along with the four dead, including 2 year old Nash Lucas, nearly 50 others got hurt. Some remain in critical condition.
