The president of Oklahoma State University has apologized after a white student posted an image of herself on social media in blackface.

OSU President Burns Hargis says he met today with black student leaders who expressed frustration and concern over the racially insensitive post. The image was posted six days after a group of OSU students took a similar picture in which some students appeared in blackface on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

The wounds for victims and family members of the OSU Homecoming Parade Crash are still raw. They gathered together on Tuesday to support each other on what was supposed to be the first day of the jury trial for Adacia Chambers, the woman accused.

Rumors had been swirling for more than a week that a plea deal was possible in the Adacia Chambers case, and instead of coming for a jury trial, dozens arrived ready to read victim impact statements about how those moments frozen in time last October still impact them every day.

Oklahoma's medical examiner says the Oklahoma State University basketball player who died in July following an outdoor team workout suffered from an enlarged heart and died of natural causes.

The woman accused of driving her car into spectators at Oklahoma State University's homecoming parade and killing four people sped up as she approached the parade route, according to a federal report released Thursday.

The National Transportation Safety Board reported that co-workers who saw 26-year-old Adacia Chambers before the crash said she seemed distracted. The agency said her "emotional distress" was the probable cause of the crash that also injured dozens of people on Oct. 24, 2015.

The woman charged in the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade crash that killed four people wants her upcoming trial moved.

Attorneys for 26-year-old Adacia Chambers filed a motion for a change of venue Monday, saying an impartial jury cannot be found in Payne County because of pretrial publicity.

Chambers has pleaded not guilty to four counts of second-degree murder and 42 counts of assault and battery for the Oct. 24, 2015, crash in Stillwater.
