Nguyen, 23, was in Austin for the music festival, and 21-year-old Rashad Charjuan Owens attempted to flee from police and drove through a barricade into a crowd that included Nguyen. He's been formally charged with capital murder. Nguyen remains hospitalized at University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin with fractures to her skull, left leg and right knee.
A fundraising page to help cover her medical expenses has been set up by her friends and family.More »
