SXSW Car Accident Leaves 2 Dead, 23 Injured!!!
Tragedy struck the popular music festival SXSW. A car busted through barricades and struck 25 people leaving two dead, five in critical condition, and the rest with injuries. To make the already terrible situation worse, the driver of the vehicle is suspected to have been driving drunk.
An Austin Police officer told the press, “Basically what happened – it was still under DWI investigation – a driver ran through some temporary barricades we had set up for South by Southwest and after running through the barricades he continued to drive hitting multiple pedestrians. Two victims were dead at the scene.” Officers on the scene of the accident took the driver of the vehicle into custody rather quickly, but that didn’t stop the driver from allegedly resisting the arrest. “I believe they had to struggle with him.” The driver is now facing capital murder charges.
