Another individual has died due to the injuries he sustained earlier in March when a driver, who was suspected of drunk driving, plowed into a crowd at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. This is the fourth person to die due to the incident.
On Thursday, March 27, Austin police tweeted that 18-year-old Forth Worth resident DeAndre Tatum, who was outside the Mohawk on March 13 when he was hit by a car that had smashed through a street barricade died. The driver who crashed into the crowd was identified as 21-year-old Rashad Owens and was accused of drunk driving, leaving the scene of a car accident, and willfully driving into the crowd. He has also thus far been charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle.
