AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A driver already charged with murder is facing 20 new charges of aggravated assault after he plowed into a crowd during the South by Southwest music festival in Austin.

Jail documents posted online Tuesday list the additional charges against 21-year-old Rashad Owens. An arrest report says Owens accelerated through a crowd, killing four people dead and leaving 17 injured.

He has already been charged with one count of capital murder in the March 13 incident.

Police say Owens was fleeing a patrolman and driving down a street that was closed for the music festival when the crash happened.

Each new charge is punishable by 99 years in prison. Owens is in jail with bail set at $3 million.

No new murder charges were listed, though more could be added later.
