Anthea Lewis had tears in her eyes on Sunday as she placed a child’s hat with an Oklahoma State University logo at the base of a makeshift memorial where a car crashed into a homecoming parade crowd a day earlier, killing four people including a 2-year-old boy and injuring dozens more.

One of the injured had been a baby sitter for Lewis, she said.
