A man and a woman died when a car plowed through a barricade set up for the South by Southwest Festival. The driver is suspected of DWI.

Austin Police Lt. Brian Moon said the driver — who has since been taken into custody — didn’t stop, even after crashing through the temporary barricades.

“The driver continued to drive after crashing through the barricades and hit numerous pedestrians before the vehicle stopped,” Moon told ABC News Radio.
