Oklahoma State's weekend homecoming festivities are said to be among the largest in the nation, including the annual Saturday morning parade.

Dave Kapple of Houston told the Stillwater News Press that he and his son were about 10 feet away when they saw a vehicle barreling into the crowd.

"We heard somebody scream, 'Look out!' (He) plowed through a police motorcycle, and then a crowd of people," Kapple said. "People were flying everywhere."

Konda Walker, from Anchorage, Alaska, was attending the festivities ahead of the homecoming game between Oklahoma State and Kansas.

"At first we thought it was part of the show," Walker told the News Press. "People were flying 30 feet into the air like rag dolls."

Oklahoma State was to play Kansas in the homecoming football game Saturday afternoon.
