Two people have died when a drunk driver crashed at South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas U.S.A.
Both a male and a female have been killed and others were injured when a car collided with a protective barrier at the music and arts festival, at about 12.30am local time. It has been stated that the driver was evading a police officer who was attempting to pursue him.
Acevedo also said that the police chief told reporters that the offending motorist hit a cab and exited the vehicle, jumping out his car and running away. An officer of the law then detained him with a stun gun. He is now set to face two counts of capital murder and 23 of aggravated assault.
