A drunk man was approached by police at an Austin gas station because they thought he might be driving drunk. The man took off in his car, drove the wrong way down a one way street and lost control of his car at a SXSW event and drove through the temporary barricades in place there and into a crowd of people. At this time it is believed he killed two people and injured at least twenty three. It all happened a little past midnight Austin time and is just awful for the families of the victims and the event and the city. This is one of those things that always scares me a little. Whenever crowds and barricades and streets all mix you always wonder whether some driver will take a wrong turn or forget to hit the brakes and in most cases you are talking to friends or looking away from what is happening and would have no time to get out of the way. Surrounded by people, even if you are aware and try and get out of the way, you might be blocked by people who are not quite as prepared. Throw into the mix that the driver was drunk and going fast and people in the crowd waiting for the show to begin might have been a little buzzed or tired or what have you and this was just a recipe for disaster. Hopefully there will be no further loss of life.
