Two people were killed early Thursday morning after a suspected drunk driver, fleeing cops plowed into a crowd at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. According to the Austin Police Department, the man and woman who lost their lives were riding a moped when the accident occurred.
During a news conference, authorities confirmed that at least 23 others were hospitalized. “We had a large crowd,” Art Acevedo, chief of the APD said. “I just thank God that a lot of the folks had already been pushed on the sidewalk or this could have been a lot worse.”
Acevedo added, “There is only one person responsible for this, someone with no regard for the sanctity of life. Our focus is on gathering evidence and seeking justice for the people who lost their lives.”
The suspect was reportedly driving the wrong way down a one way street and when officers tried to pull him over, he sped off. That’s when the suspect ran into barricades on a busy street where several clubs are located. The suspect is currently in custody and will face two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault by a vehicle.
When the accident took place, rapper, Tyler, the Creator was getting ready to hit the stage for the Vans showcase. Tyler took to Twitter to announce that the show was not happening.
“Show Isnt Happening, Something Sad Happened. I’m Bummed,” he wrote.
At that point, we are pretty sure Tyler didn’t know the severity of the incident.
Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.
Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.
Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.
Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.
Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.
So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.
Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
