AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A Dutch music company has identified one of the victims of a suspected drunken driver that 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 died suddenly in Austin and identified him as 35-year-old Steven Craenmehr. No one at the company responded to phone messages requesting additional information.

Police say the driver also 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.
