An alleged drunk driver has just killed two people and injured 23 at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas.  Five of the injured are critical.  This took place before Tyler the Creator of Odd Future went on stage. The driver “plowed through barricades erected to close off an area for music fans.”  This accident took place at “Red River Street and East 10th Street an Austin” according to a police official. The officer also mentioned “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."
