AUSTIN, Texas — A Dutch music company has identified one of the victims of a suspected drunken driver who barreled through barricades at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin.

Police Chief Art Acevedo said one of two people killed early Thursday was a Dutch citizen riding a bicycle.

Massive Music, a company with offices in Amsterdam, New York and London, said one of their employees was killed in the crash in Austin and identified him as 35-year-old Steven Craenmehr.

The driver also allegedly struck a moped, killing the woman on it. A man on the moped and 22 pedestrians were injured.

The driver was expected to be charged later Thursday, when his name would be released.
