STILLWATER — One Stillwater hospital decided against billing the victims of last month’s deadly homecoming parade incident.

On Tuesday, the Stillwater Medical Center Administration and Board of Trustees said the hospital won’t bill any of the patients from the Oklahoma State University homecoming parade crash, reported KFOR.

A vehicle driven by  25-year-old Adacia Chambers went through a barrier and into the parade crowd on Oct. 24 , killing four people and injuring another 46.

“We know this has been a very difficult time for our patients and our community,” said Jerry Moeller, CEO. “We wanted to do our best to ease the minds of the victims from the tragic event.”

Any of the victims who need additional treatment can file claims through their health insurance or through SMC’s financial assistance program, KFOR reported.
