STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Officials in Stillwater have dedicated a memorial to the four people killed and 50 injured in a homecoming parade crash at Oklahoma State University.

OSU professor Kyle Eastham is a member of the group that helped raise $52,000 for the memorial. He said during Friday's ceremony that it's hard to think about that day, but impossible to forget it.

The memorial features a six-foot tall alloy ribbon in orange and blue with four granite tiles describing the four killed. A fifth granite tile on a separate pedestal describes the memorial and the Stillwater Strong effort.

Killed in the Oct. 24, 2015, crash were 23-year-old Nikita Nakal; 2-year-old Nash Lucas; and married couple Bonnie and Marvin Stone, both 65.Cherokee Nation citizen Adacia Chambers pleaded no contest in the case and received multiple life sentences last year.
