After the tragic crash in Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Saturday, wherein Adacia Chambers crashed into a crowd without stepping on her brakes at the OSU homecoming parade, people are turning online to try and find more information about Adacia.
As reported by the Associated Press, 25-year-old Adacia killed a 2-year-old boy and three adults when Chambers barreled into the crowd at the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade on Saturday in Stillwater. Until the results of the blood tests given to Adacia are published and released to the public, Chambers’ condition is trying to be determined by any type of social media profile that Adacia may have published prior to the horrific crash.
Meanwhile, online searchers are already taking it upon themselves to play world wide web detectives, uncovering social media accounts believed to belong to Adacia or supporters for Chambers. A Twitter account named @adaciachambers has become the subject for some folks tweeting about Adacia, with folks turning the “glad to be me” tagline on its head.
It was a crash so graphic, harmful, and horrible that some Oklahoma State University homecoming game fans decided not to attend the game that went along as scheduled, although the event featured a great majority of the OSU players praying for the Chambers crash victims. Five people were still listed in critical condition as of Sunday as Adacia remained in jail. Chambers lives in Stillwater, but isn’t enrolled at Oklahoma State University.
As reported by Heavy, Facebook.com/adacia.chambers was active; however, that Facebook account is listed as having Chambers’ Facebook photos and content not available as of this writing. On Instagram, only the #AdaciaChambers hashtag was found, containing Instagram posts from others posting news about the tragedy, and not an account belonging to Chambers herself. A search for Adacia’s Facebook photos via Google Images turns up plenty of Facebook photos of Chambers prior to her Facebook account being made unavailable, with some nefarious websites using compelling labels like “Adacia drunk” in order to try and get unsuspecting clickers to visit sites that might contain malware and viruses.
After Chambers drove her Hyundai Elantra and plowed into the OSU Parade crowd, Adacia’s dad, Floyd Chambers of Oologah, reported that he could not comprehend how his daughter would be involved in such a crash.
According to Twitter, search terms such as “Adacia Chambers facebook,” “Oklahoma State video,” “Stillwater,” and “Adacia Chambers video” are trending, along with the news that Chambers has a support group for Adacia set up for her on Facebook.
Called the “Support Group for Adacia Chambers” and set up 13 hours ago on Facebook, the pastor behind the Facebook page explained why he set up the support page.
“I’ve been asked to state who I am and explain about this page. Most importantly my heart goes out to all the victims and their families. Terrible tragedy, very sad. I do not know Adacia nor do I live in Oklahoma. I am a Lutheran pastor in my mid 50’s. I have worked with prison ministries for many years and just as Jesus sat with sinners I find nothing wrong with sharing hope with the hopeless and love with the unloved. I certainly mean no disrespect to the deceased or injured. Peace of the Lord be with all of you.”
As expected, the Facebook support page is receiving plenty of backlash and comments. A support group for OSU victims on Facebook has also been set up.
