Early Thursday morning, a drunk driver kills 2 and injures 23 at SXSW in Austin, TX. Eye witnesses say a male driving a small silver car avoided a traffic stop around 12:30 am. The driver immediately swerved through cars at a gas station, and began a chase with police.
The Los Angeles Times reported the incident began shortly after midnight when a motorist being stopped on suspicion of driving while intoxicated sped away from police, broke through a barricade and headed the wrong way down a one-way street crowded with music revelers, police said.
The car slammed into a crowd standing near the Mohawk nightclub, striking two people on a motorized scooter who were killed immediately, then hit a number of other bystanders.
The driver also hit a taxi and a parked van before stopping his vehicle and fleeing on foot, police spokesman Jermaine Kilgore said.
The Vans Showcase, featuring rapper Tyler the Creator, was taking place inside the Mohawk as one of the closing events of the annual SXSW music and film festival.
The names of the deceased were not immediately made available, pending notification of next of kin.
An estimated 32,000 people swarm through the capital of the southern state for SXSW, a collection of interactive, film, and music festivals and conferences, which runs from March 7 to March 16.
Hy-Tekk Productions would like to take this time and remember those lost and hurt in the tragic turn of events.
