Third Person Dies After SXSW Accident

A third person has been confirmed dead after last Wednesday’s car crash in Austin, Texas. The Austin Statesman reported via Twitter that Sandy Le—an Austin resident by the way of Pass Christian, Miss., and one of the five people initially listed in critical condition—died early this morning. The crash also claimed the lives of Steven Craenmehr of The Netherlands and Jamie Ranae West of Austin.

The driver of the vehicle was named earlier this week as Rashad Charjuan Owens, a resident of Killeen, Texas, who was being pursued by police in suspicion of drunk driving. Read our full report straight from the festival’s press conference here.
