AUSTIN, Texas — A speeding car drove into a packed crowd of pedestrians outside a busy downtown Austin nightclub during the South By Southwest music festival early this morning, killing two bystanders and injuring at least 23.

The incident began shortly after midnight when a motorist being stopped on suspicion of driving while intoxicated sped away from police, broke through a barricade and headed the wrong way down a one-way street crowded with music revelers, police said.
