Two Ft. Worth teens among injured at South by Southwest

Posted: Updated:

Two Fort Worth teens are among those seriously hurt after a car crashed into a crowd overnight in Austin at South by Southwest.

Deandre Tatum, 19, and Curtisha Davis, 18, remain hospitalized in Austin. Family friends said the two are dating and met when Tatum was in high school. Davis is a senior at Trimble Tech High School and Tatum graduated from Trimble Tech last spring.

Family friends were told that Davis has a broken arm, neck and leg among other injuries. Tatum is reportedly in a medically induced coma due to his injuries.

Friends of the two gathered at Trimble Tech HS on Thursday afternoon to get the latest updates on the two. The friends were able to briefly speak with Davis on Thursday afternoon on speaker phone and told her they were thinking about her.

"I'm just praying every second that they get better," said friend Brittine Thompson.

Austin police have arrested a man, Rashad Owens of Killeen, for suspected drunk driving early Thursday morning. Owens crashed through barricades and hit numerous people on a busy street outside a South by Southwest music venue. Two people were killed and a total of 23 were injured.
