      Third dies from SXSW crash

      People are treated after being struck by a vehicle on Red River Street in downtown Austin, Texas, during SXSW on Wednesday.

      For the first time in the festival's history, South by Southwest was the location of a fatal accident.

      Rashad Charjuan Owens, 21, barreled through a barricade on March 13, killing two and injuring 23 in the process. Another has died as a result of injuries related to the crash.

      The Austin Police Chief said on Thursday afternoon that the suspect of the drunk driving incident is facing two counts of capital murder -- the highest offense that you can charge someone with -- as well as multiple counts of aggravated assault with a vehicle.

      "That vehicle was used as a weapon and he will be charged with those crimes," he said.

      One of the victims killed in the accident was a Dutch citizen on a bicycle, Steven Craenmehr, 35, as well as Jamie West of Austin, 27, a man on a moped. The recently deceased is 26-year-old Sandy Le. Le was in a crowd outside of an Austin club when Owens drove his car through the crowd.
