Yesterday morning two people were killed and 23 injured at South By Southwest after a driver sped down a crowded street.

Last night festival organizers and the venues in Austin have set up a relief fund for the victims of the incident.

“The SXSW Cares Fund will help people affected by the tragic events of March 13, 2014, and future possible events.” reads a statement. “The funds will be disbursed to those most affected through a community-based process  to be created by representatives of SXSW, the Austin Convention and Visitors Bureau and the City of Austin with the Austin Community Foundation.”
