    SXSW Tragedy: Two Killed, 23 Injured - A drunk driver plowed into a crowd

    It is with a heavy heart that we report this news. Late last night (March 12), a drunk driver operating a Toyota sedan plowed into a crowd of people outside the Mohawk venue at SXSW, taking place in Austin, Texas. The driver killed a couple riding a moped and injured 23 others. Several victims are said to be in critical condition.

    The driver was attempting to avoid cops, swerved in and out of traffic and then drove the wrong way down a one way street, hitting people outside the venue. The driver also attempted to flee the scene after hitting a cab, but was subdued by a stun gun.
