Tragedy has struck the 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival and two people are dead following a fatal car crash that took place on early Thursday morning (March 13) in Austin, Tex.
Police say that a car drove through temporary barricades that were set up for the festival and struck a crowd of pedestrians around 12:30am. Two people were confirmed dead at the scene and 21 others were taken to various hospitals in the area, most with just minor injuries. Around five to seven of them had more serious injuries.
“This is extremely unusual,” Lt. Moon of the Austin Police Dept. told Rolling Stone. “There have been some very rare instances of vehicles striking pedestrians in the entertainment area, but this is the first time it’s ever affected a SXSW event.”
The driver has been taken into custody and is being investigated for driving under the influence.
The victims were in line waiting for a Tyler, the Creator show, which was canceled in light of the accident. “Show Isnt Happening, Something Sad Happened. I’m Bummed,” he tweeted after the news broke.

Kristen Bell hits the red carpet at the premiere of her movie Veronica Mars on Wednesday evening (March 12) at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
The 33-year-old actress was joined on the carpet by her co-stars Jason Dohring and Ryan Hansen, as well as writer/director Rob Thomas. Her hubby Dax Shepard was also there to support her!
Also in attendance at the premiere were stars Chris Lowell, Tina Majorino, and Amanda Noret.
Kristen recently chatted with Huffington Post about playing a strong female character on the big screen. “The hunger is definitely there for this female character because she’s this interesting paradox of vulnerable and confident. And I think a lot of women are,” she said. “For me as a viewer, it’s inherently more interesting to watch a female because of the layers she possesses. I’m just glad that other audience members feel the same.”
FYI: Kristen is wearing a J. Mendel dress and Piaget earrings.
