2 Dead After Car Crashes into Texas Crowd

Posted: Updated:

Police in Austin, Texas say a suspected drunken driver trying to escape from police plowed through barricades at the South By Southwest festival, killing a man and a woman on a moped.  

About 23 pedestrians also were struck and injured, five of them critically.

Police say the driver was taken into custody, but not before he smashed into a taxi and was zapped with a stun gun when he got out of his car and tried to run away.
