At the 2014 South by South festival in Texas, a drunken driver plowed into a crowd of festivalgoers, killing three and sending several critically injured people to the hospital. Rashad Owens of Killeen has been charged with capital murder and aggravated motor vehicle assault. Stunningly, his blood alcohol content (BAC) was recorded at 0.114 at arrest.
There are at least three grieving families who may soon file wrongful death lawsuits against him in civil court. Numerous hospitalized individuals may wish to obtain compensation for the injuries that resulted from Owens’ actions.
