Tragedy struck the Austin music festival, South by Southwest, when a suspected drunk driver tore through a crowd in front of a nightclub, injuring 23 people, and killing two. According to the Dallas Morning News, three of the injured are in critical condition but are expected to recover. The driver was also treated for minor injuries after eventually crashing the vehicle and attempting to escape on foot. Officials had just cleared the area that the driver plowed into; the accident could have been much worse if the driver had struck minutes before. The driver, whose name has not been released, is in custody and faces two counts of capital murder.
