DeAndre Tatum, the last remaining person hospitalized after a deadly crash in Austin during the South By Southwest Music Festival, has died, Austin police say.

Tatum, 19, was placed in a medically-induced coma after he was run over by a suspected drunken driver who barreled through police barricades and drove down a crowded street in Downtown Austin on March 13.

Rashad Owens, 21, of Killeen, was the driver implicated in the crash. Police said Owens was trying to avoid arrest when he crashed into a closed street packed with people. He was charged with capital murder two days after the crash; more charges are likely with Tatum's death. Owens is currently being held on $3 million bond.
