AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Six people remain hospitalized nearly a week after a suspected drunken driver plowed into a South By Southwest festival crowd in a crash that has claimed three lives.

A spokesman for University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin says five victims were still hospitalized Tuesday. Steve Taylor says one person remains critical, two are fair and two patients are in good condition.

An official for St. David’s Medical Center says one victim remains hospitalized in fair condition.

Police say the driver, Rashad Owens of Killeen, was legally intoxicated and fleeing from officers when he veered into the crowd. Two people were killed Thursday. Austin police say a third critically injured person, Sandy Thuy Le, died Monday.

Owens remains jailed on capital murder and aggravated assault with a motor vehicle charges.
