Boy, am I glad I’m not at SXSW in Austin this year.

Knowing my luck, I would have been standing outside Cheer Up Charlies and the Mohawk, and would have been mowed down by last night’s drunk driver.

Yes, folks — a drunk asshole killed two people and injured 23 others after driving his car into a crowd.

The drunken motorist was already evading police, refusing to pull over.

The driver eventually crashed his car and attempted to flee on foot before being tasered and apprehended.

The police held a press conference this morning reporting that 15 victims have since been treated and released from the hospital, while 5 remain in serious condition and 3 others are under the hospital’s care with non-life-threatening injuries.

The as-yet unnamed suspect is due to be charged with crimes this afternoon.
