Transcript for Capt. Kyle Gibbs on Deadly OSU Homecoming Crash
We're join bid captain Kyle Gibbs with the stillwater police. Thank you for joining us this morning. We learned overnight that the charges have been upgraded from manslaughter to second-degree murder. You have someone driving under the influence and they end up killing four persons. That's the reason for the htds charge. Tell us about the suspect. Do you believe this was deliber deliberate? I'm sure there are days left before we can draw conclusions like that. Certainly, the decision to become intoxicated or under the influence and drive a car was certainly intentional. And what more do we know about what happened before the accident? Some reports she left work early. May have been fired. From her job, perhaps. Perhaps because she was suspected of using drugs there. Don't know. We have heard the same rumors and speculation. Our people will try to run that down and figure out what happened in the hours and minutes leading up to this incident. Has miss chambers said anything to you or your investigators about what's happened? No, she's made no statements to us whatsoever. Now she has legal representation. That attorney believes she may have a mental illness. Any signs of that? Not that we have heard of, at this point. When do you expect the results of the toxicology tests? It will probably be a couple of weeks. We're hoping that the osbi, who analyzes the blood samples can step that up for us. Finally, sir. Such a blow to your community. How is your community handling it? What is the latest on the victims in the hospital? I believe there's 17 victims still in the hospital. Last night, we were checking, of course, on the critical conditions. Those five patients in critical condition are still in critical. Nobody's been released. We were unable to get updated status on 100% of them. That will continue today. Okay, can't Gibbs, thank you for your time this morning.
