Summary: Vietnamese-American dental student at the University of Texas in Austin who had been hospitalized in critical condition for nearly a week from head injuries suffered in a violent March 13 DUI vehicular accident that killed at least two people at the scene and seriously injured 23 others after being rammed by a speeding car driven by a suspected drunk driver identified as 21-year-old aspiring rapper Rashad Charjuan Owens while trying to evade a police chase in an effort to avoid a drunken-driving traffic stop when Owens had accelerated his car into a crowd of festival attendees through a street barricade outside the popular The Mohawk bar and live music venue during the annual South by South West Music Festival in downtown Austin's Red River Entertainment District, in which the incident prompted discussion about whether the SXSW festival had grown too large and raucous after Owens was charged with capital murder and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle.
